The Department for International Development's (DFID's) original assessment team members returned to the UK on Sunday 7 February after a period of handover to new personnel who will continue to provide daily field reports on the developing humanitarian situation in Haiti. These daily situation reports are used to inform strategic choices and funding decisions and are published on the DFID website for members of the public to view. To date DFID has not produced a final report on Haiti. We expect our assessment team to continue reporting from Haiti for at least three months from the date of the earthquake on 12 January. Daily situation reports and further information on the earthquake in Haiti can be found at:
