As officials and communities across the tiny Caribbean country plan low-key ceremonies, tens of thousands of people still live in makeshift camps around the capital, Port-au-Prince.
Recovery efforts have been slow to take hold because of a paralysed government, the island's inadequate infrastructure and other factors, such as a drought, tropical storm Isc and cyclone Sandy last year. Less than half of the several billion dollars pledged by donors has been raised and distributed.
