Cash-for-work schemes in Haiti have helped to clear some of the rubble from the streets of earthquake-devastated Port-au-Prince, but rebuilding the country will be a very long-term process.

About 1.5 million people lost their homes in the earthquake and many may be resettled outside the city under a government initiative, a move that has made landowners nervous.
