 In the immediate aftermath of the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti, the CDAC Network undertook its first ever ground initiative. This initiative, which came to be known as CDAC Haiti, was funded largely through the OCHA’s ERRF with some additional short-term funding in 2011 from the global CDAC Network and the World Health Organisation (WHO). In total, CDAC Haiti received $US 615,000. This CDAC Haiti Learning Review documents CDAC Haiti’s activities, assesses achievements and contributes to knowledge about what worked, what didn’t, and why. A key component of the Review is the identification of lessons from this area of humanitarian coordination that can be drawn for other emergency operations. The Review was conducted between October 2011 and January 2012. CDAC Haiti was funded largely through the Emergency Relief Response Fund (ERRF) with some additional short-term funding in 2011 from the global CDAC Network and the World Health Organisation (WHO). As it developed over time and became clearer about the kind of function it could play, CDAC Haiti came to operate as a communication sub-group within the UN cluster system. It brought together humanitarian actors, media development organisations, local media and representatives of the Government of Haiti (GoH) in a collective effort to improve two-way communication between aid providers and the affected Haitian population.
