Description and results


Haiti prioritizes Copenhagen Consensus Center is a research and outreach project that analyzes and promotes the investments necessary to achieve the best results for Haiti, socially, environmentally and economically, with optimal use of each gourd spent (local money). This project involves hundreds of sectorial experts, months of research and collaboration with the decision makers of the most valuable development strategies for Haiti. Imparted with knowledge on those solutions that work, and with an increased understanding of where a gourde goes furthest, the public, youth, opinion leaders and decision makers will be empowered to focus more on some of the most incisive solutions for Haiti.
