In the name of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) I would like to express our deepest sympathy and solidarity to the people and authorities of Haiti for the loss of life and injuries caused by Hurricane Matthew.
IDB staff members on the ground in Port-au-Prince are working with the Haitian Government to coordinate efforts to assess losses and determine reconstruction efforts to be carried out jointly with the international community.
We are also working with the Ministry of Public Works and other agencies to prioritize efforts to restore access to roads and bridges to isolated and vulnerable communities.
We extend our sympathies and solidary to other Caribbean nations affected by this tragedy.
