The United Nations and the United States are hosting a conference today on paying for rebuilding in Haiti after the earthquake. Haitian President Rene Preval is expected to present a report on his country's needs, and the amount he's asking for may break records. Also on the table will be a vision for Haiti in the near future. The estimated cost over the next ten years? $11.5 billion. 


We're joined by Mark Doyle, international development correspondent for our partner the BBC, to tell us more about the situation on the ground, and what Haiti needs now.
