Rebuilding Ha’apai: One Year On

January 25, 2015

It was just over a year ago that Cyclone Ian destroyed much of the infrastructure on Ha’apai. I’ve been very grateful to have the opportunity to lead the World Bank team’s efforts at supporting the reconstruction. We’ve made progress—contracts have been let for constructing 400 houses—but it is not fast enough for my liking as people are still not rehoused. Hopefully not too much longer …  This video shows why such a project is not only important, but personally the most rewarding work I’ve done for the Bank.
