Planning For Investment in Housing in Haiti
Haiti is facing a housing dilemma both in the capital, Port-au-Prince, and its provinces. The country is ill-fit to sustain the massive return of its aging Diaspora abroad. Recent statistical survey conducted in 2006 among 7000 people in the Haitian Diaspora between 70 to 89 years old has showed that 80 percent want to return home.
The creation of several public housing projects initiated by the private sector and the government have a waiting list of over 20,000 applicants.
The housing shortage and dilemma in Haiti has reached a crisis level in Port-au-Prince and the provinces from 2004 to present. The need for a quick gain and accommodating the need for business storage has spurred most housing developers to transform existing living quarters into storeroom space. Last year, 63% of all new housing constructions were geared towards storage rental rather than habitable housing.
