On January 12, 2010, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti. Its shocking aftermath once again demonstrates the need for timely, accurate information to strengthen aid, response and recovery after a disaster. On January 13, 2010, the ICT4Peace Foundation created a new page on its ICT4Peace Inventory wiki with curated links to a number of leading international and local sources with vital information on Haiti and aid efforts.
