The United Nations humanitarian chief has outlined conditions in Haiti, six months after a devastating earthquake shook the country.

John Holmes, who heads the UN office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, has delivered a six-month report on the humanitarian situation in Haiti.

It says although much progress had been made, there is still a lot to do for the one and a half million people left homeless by the disaster.

He says shelter remains the number one priority, with more than a million people still living in tents.

On the 10-billion-US-dollar international fund to help reconstruction, Holmes says the Haitian people need to see tangible results from the money.
