When it comes to Haiti's recovery there are many more questions than answers. With over 10,000 NGOs already present in Haiti before the earthquake and hundreds of millions of dollars pouring in since, who will coordinate relief efforts? Is the government capable of running the country or is international help needed to shore up each important government service? How can the economy recover in the face of such a high illiteracy rate? Who will train people for jobs? How can Haitians obtain bare necessities such as food, water, and medical care with an infrastructure that is decimated both literally and figuratively?
For this week's CBS Doc Dot Com, I spoke to Gerald Martone, Director of Humanitarian Affairs at the International Relief Committee, about these questions and others as Haiti tries not only to survive but to become a self-sustaining, prosperous nation.
