During April 2012, Urbaconsulting carried out the Resettlement Plan of ‘Zorange’ Housing Complex (400 new houses in the North of Port-au-Prince), aimed at receiving displaced families living in camps since the earthquake. This was a pilot operation, since it is the first social housing project to be concluded since the earthquake.

The project aimed at developing the following activities:

•    Methodology to select the beneficiaries, on the base of the data managed by the International Migration Organization and the definition of eligibility criteria.
•    Mapping of the family location inside the housing complex focusing on the preservation of social and community networks inside the new area.
•    Moving strategy from camps to new houses (organization, time schedule, material and human needs).
•    Support to family arrival, welcoming modalities for their physical and social integration.
•    Governance system: legal status (renting/leasing, contract drafting), financial modalities (rent amount, management structure).
•    Drafting of the TORs for an organization in charge of social monitoring during 18 months after the settlement: psycho-social follow-up, capacity building for community projects (needs assessment, revenue producing activities, urban services management, etc.).
•    Communication needs assessment: information flows and content to all involved stakeholders (displaced families, neighbouring communities, NGOs, public authorities, etc.).
•    Design of social dialogue tools throughout the whole resettlement programme (meetings, claim desk).
