Delivering science-based solutions and technical services to improve lives around the world

As both a global research institute and a leading international development organization, RTI combines our project implementation and technical expertise with those of our partners to co-create smart, shared solutions for a more prosperous, equitable, and resilient world.

For over 25 years, we have collaborated with clients and partners in Haiti to advance sustainable, multi-sectoral solutions for the most difficult development challenges. In all that we do, we strive for transformative change built on equity and inclusion.

 Our experience and recent project implementation include:

Disaster Management in Haiti

  • Through the Regional Disaster Assistance Program, we support the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance’s (OFDA) in building disaster resilience and maximizing the response, planning, training, and risk reduction efforts in 27 countries in the Latin America and Caribbean region, including Haiti.

Education in Haiti

Food Security and Agriculture in Haiti

  • We worked with local partners to strengthen the market for several of Haiti’s main crops—including sorghum and maize—while expanding earning potential and job opportunities in agriculture with a focus on resilience and women’s empowerment. 

Governance and Economic Development in Haiti

Health in Haiti

  • Through the ENVISION and Act to End Neglected Tropical Diseases | East programs, we have been at the forefront of helping USAID and country partners prevent and control neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) by empowering governments of endemic countries, including Haiti, to lead national NTD control programs and scale up the delivery of preventive chemotherapy for the seven most common NTDs.

Water Resilience

  • With funding from the Inter-American Development Bank, we developed and implemented a suite of watershed modeling tools, called HydroBID, to help countries adapt to climate change. We have implemented HydroBID in more than 11 countries and trained over 400 people to use it as a key planning tool in various types of organizations.
