Haiti Transitional Appeal 2015 - 2016 Executive Summary

The Haiti Transitional Appeal (TAP) replaces and broadens the Humanitarian Action Plan of 2014 and thus serves as an integrated strategic and operational plan for humanitarian and resilience-building action implemented by the UN and Partners over the period 2015-2016.

The TAP includes interventions that will lay the foundations of sustainable development programming for the next planning cycle and addresses the underlying vulnerabilities, structural deficiencies and capacity gaps that have resulted in humanitarian needs.

The TAP is the result of a large-scale participatory planning process involving over 16 national Ministries, institutions and mechanisms, 20 United Nations entities and key members of the community of non-governmental and civil society organisations in Haiti. Unfolding over a five-month period, the planning process was marked by two major planning workshops and numerous validation exercises.

Strategic guidance and oversight was provided by a Steering Committee for Joint Planning, comprised of the Ministry of Planning and External Cooperation (MPCE) and the Office of the Resident Coordinator/Humanitarian Coordinator (RCO/HCO). The RCO/HCO and the UN System provided coordination and compilation.

The Executive Summary is available in French and English.
