iciHaiti - Internet : HaitiData the first atlas of natural risks
More than a year after the passage of Hurricane Matthew in Haiti, the Ministry of the Interior, the Interministerial Committee for Territorial Development (CIAT) and the World Bank have made public the first atlas of natural risks and a platform open data.

For the first time, these geospatial data and maps are available to all Haitian citizens to allow a better analysis of natural threats and a better allocation and use of public resources in post-disaster situations.

" www.haitidata.org/ is an open data platform that centralizes and shares information to provide the general public with a tool for creating, visualizing and directly accessing geospatial data, thereby promoting the sharing of risk knowledge and public awareness," said Boby Emmanuel Piard, General Director of the National Center for Geo-Spatial Information (CNIGS).

"The Government has made significant progress in strengthening the management of risks and disasters, and the Ministry of the Interior can count on the World Bank's continued commitment to this effort. Until recently, hurricanes Irma and Maria have highlighted the importance of accessing this data in order to better prepare and sensitize the population," said Anabela Abreu, Country Director for the World Bank.
