    The Republic of Honduras | Urgent call for assistance
    Hurricanes Eta and Iota
    2020
    Also available in:

    Hurricanes Eta and Iota are the most severe natural hazards that have hit Honduras in more than 20 years. Early November, Category 4 Hurricane Eta started bringing torrential rains and winds as strong as 275 km/h in northern Honduras. During its slow three-day journey over Nicaragua, Honduras and Guatemala, Eta downgraded to a tropical storm and then onto a tropical depression, with heavy rains in much of Honduras and causing river levels to rise, flooding and landslides across the country. On 16 November 2020, Category 5 Hurricane Iota made landfall, which went from being a major storm to a tropical depression following almost the same path as Eta. Hurricane Iota caused even more flooding and wind damage, affecting already vulnerable communities following the passage of Eta, further aggravating humanitarian needs and food insecurity. In a country where 1.65 million people were facing acute food insecurity at crisis or worse levels, the impact of the hurricanes is likely to have increased the number of people in IPC Phase 3+. This is linked to the sudden decrease in food access and availability, labour, loss of productive assets and crops, damage in production areas, supply and the depletion of food reserves. The livelihoods of rural populations are devastated and the situation is threatening the most vulnerable population groups, who experience higher constraints in accessing food, and will face a rapid deterioration of their food security and nutrition, forcing them to adopt negative coping mechanisms.

    Honduras | Plan de Respuesta Humanitaria 2021–2022 2021
    Also available in:

    El impacto de la pandemia de coronavirus (COVID-19) y de los huracanes Eta e Iota han agravado la crisis multidimensional en Honduras, debilitando la capacidad de reacción de las comunidades. Los crecientes niveles de desigualdad junto con la pobreza, la violencia, los desplazamientos y el acceso limitado a los servicios sociales básicos son algunos de los principales factores que conducen a un aumento de la inseguridad alimentaria y la malnutrición en el país. Las poblaciones vulnerables, como mujeres, niños, trabajadores informales, comunidades indígenas y afrodescendientes, así como las personas que viven con discapacidades, se encuentran entre los más afectados. Con las crisis cruzadas que conducen a un aumento de las necesidades en el país, se necesita un apoyo urgente de los medios de vida para restablecer rápidamente la capacidad de producción de los hogares afectados para que puedan acceder a los alimentos y generar ingresos.

    Colombia | Revised humanitarian response (May–December 2020)
    Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)

    The most vulnerable and food-insecure populations in Colombia mainly live in rural areas, including women, indigenous peoples, afro-descendant communities, youth and refugees/migrants from Venezuela (Bolivarian Republic of), due to the challenges they face linked to prolonged armed conflict and environmental degradation. As the COVID-19 pandemic is rapidly spreading across Colombia strict but essential health-related containment measures have been implemented since the end of March. A spike in confirmed cases, particularly in some of the main urban areas, at the end of April forced the Government to reinstate restrictions in the most affected cities. The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and related containment measures have generally impacted the food supply chain. While crop production has not been significantly affected by the containment measures, the livestock sector has been more affected. Overall, the challenges linked to marketing coupled with the slowdown of economic activities have reduced food access in the country. In the framework of the Global Humanitarian Response Plan for COVID-19, FAO has revised its humanitarian response for 2020 to mitigate the effects of the pandemic and address the needs of the most vulnerable households.
