    Political, security and related humanitarian conditions in Burundi aren’t expected to improve and will lead to a continued outflow of Burundian refugees in 2018. As the phenomenon is becoming protracted, promoting access to agricultural livelihoods is key to achieve refugees’ self-reliance. Enhancing the productive capacities of both refugee and host populations is critical for them to peacefully co-exist and reduce pressure on the already limited natural resources of vulnerable host communities.

    Burundi | 2020 Humanitarian Response Plan 2020
    Also available in:

    Burundi remains one of the poorest countries in the world, with severe food insecurity affecting nearly one in two households. Recurrent natural disasters and epidemic diseases have affected the livelihoods and resilience of the most vulnerable populations. In 2020, a complex political context and the persistence of chronic vulnerabilities are likely to further worsen the food security situation in the country. If no assistance is provided, the effects of recurrent natural disasters, a fragile political context, population displacement and epidemics are likely to further worsen vulnerable populations’ livelihoods and food insecurity.

    Haiti | Emergency Response Plan (March–May 2019)
    Improving the livelihoods of drought-affected people

    FAO requires USD 8.6 million to assist 330 000 people during the period March–May 2019. Haiti is regularly hit by extreme climatic events that have seriously increased vulnerabilities in the country, particularly in rural areas and among agriculture-based livelihood communities. Almost every year since 2014, Haiti has been affected by episodes of drought and erratic distribution of rainfall. Compounding the humanitarian situation were the devastating effects of Hurricanes Matthew (October 2016) and Irma (September 2017). Hurricane Matthew – the strongest since Felix in 2007 – had catastrophic impacts on the food security and livelihoods of different communities. In 2018, severe drought resulted in a significant decline in agricultural production and households’ income. The high probability of an El Niño phenomenon in 2019 will likely increase the persistence of drought in parts of the country in the coming months. Moreover, an economic crisis triggered by a depreciation of the Haitian gourde has caused a significant reduction in households’ purchasing power, directly affecting their food security.
