Critical situation requires drastic measures in order to come up with a solution.

In any catastrophic situation, the government(state) has full legal power to do almost anything within their reach.

This includes, but not limited to, taking over empty lots for short or long terms to build shelters for homeless people.

Whether or not the Haitian government owns any piece of land in Haiti is irrevelent.It's not even the proper way to address the issues and come up with a solution.

However, it's fair to say that the Haitian government barely owns any land/lots in Haiti.

Most of the land were taken (stole)by people within the last 50 years who don't even have any deed to show proof of ownership.

Keep in mind that Haiti is still in emergency mode. If there is any lots that is feasible to build shelters, the government needs to take it and move the people from their tents.

This is a legal process where the land owner can always get their land/lots back once permanent housing are built.
