    The programme was the first to integrate the human security approach to tackle the root causes of insecurities related to disasters in Haiti. Through the reinforcement of formal protection mechanisms and the empowerment of women, youth and the other vulnerable groups, the programme advocated for inclusive and participatory strategies that addressed gaps in national and international plans through a strong emphasis on the development of community-based responses. As a result, the interventions strengthened collaboration between the government and communities on preparedness and response to recurring natural shocks, focused attention on reaching those most vulnerable, and promoted greater coherence between humanitarian assistance and development support to enhance disaster resilience.
