    Haïti | Aperçu de la réponse (juillet 2021) 2021
    Also available in:

    Haïti connaît l’une des pires crises alimentaires au monde, avec 46 pour cent de la population estimée en situation d’insécurité alimentaire aiguë, principalement en raison des impacts des catastrophes naturelles et de la baisse de la production agricole, aujourd’hui aggravés par les effets de la maladie à coronavirus 2019 (covid-19). Les troubles politiques et la recrudescence de la violence liée aux affrontements entre gangs rivaux à Port-au-Prince ont provoqué d’importants déplacements de population, aggravant la crise humanitaire. L’état d’urgence a également été déclaré à la suite de l’assassinat du Président, entraînant un vide politique et des incertitudes supplémentaires dans le pays. Dans ce contexte, les niveaux d’insécurité alimentaire aiguë en Haïti risquent d’augmenter davantage. Il est ainsi essentiel de fournir une assistance agricole aux ménages les plus vulnérables, afin de restaurer leurs actifs productifs et diversifier leurs sources de nourriture et de revenus pour renforcer la résilience de leurs moyens d’existence.

    Haiti: Response overview

    In Haiti, sociopolitical unrest, economic decline, violence perpetrated by armed groups, low agricultural production, rising food and fuel prices, and frequent natural disasters have led to increased levels of food insecurity. The new estimates indicate that about 5 in 10 households are currently facing acute hunger and for the first time in the country, the municipality of Cité Soleil registered 5 percent of the population in Catastrophe (IPC Phase 5). Food security has also continued to deteriorate in rural areas, with several departments falling into Emergency (IPC Phase 4). This is mainly due to harvest losses following below-average rainfall as well as the 2021 earthquake that devastated parts of the Grand´Anse, Nippes and Sud. As a result, households face limited availability of and access to food, and are forced to adopt negative coping mechanisms to meet basic needs. The recent cholera outbreak is also likely to further increase the number of people food insecure. Due to the severity of the situation, urgent actions are required to support about half of the population. Providing the poorest and most food‑insecure households with livelihoods assistance is crucial to sustainably improve their food security and increase their self-reliance.

    Haiti: Addressing the increased needs of vulnerable populations affected by escalating violence
    Urgent call for assistance
    2024
    Also available in:

    Haiti is one of nine countries in the world facing the risk of famine and one of five countries with more than 10 percent of the population in Emergency (IPC Phase 4). With the recent surge of violence, food insecurity levels have further deteriorated – nearly half of its population is acutely food insecure. In response, FAO is urgently requesting additional funding to provide emergency agricultural support to crisis-affected people until the end of the year, to quickly improve their access to and availability of food.
