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

    During the past ten years, Haiti has been hit by multiple earthquakes and hurricanes, as well as a series of droughts linked to the El Niño phenomenon, irregular distribution of rainfall and floods while still facing cholera, diphtheria, malaria, a migration crisis and recurrent protection issues. These factors have caused widespread damage to crop, livestock and fish production, and to rural infrastructure, severely affecting the livelihoods of vulnerable households. Political instability, sharp inflation, the depreciation of the national currency and underlying poverty have also fuelled socio-political unrest over the last few years. Following confirmation of the first COVID-19 case on 19 March 2020, the Government declared a state of emergency, which has been prolonged until July 2020, and adopted essential containment measures to prevent the spread of the virus, including the closure of factories, schools, airports and ports, banning of meetings of more than ten people, night curfew, prohibition of informal street selling and reduced opening hours of public markets. The pandemic has further exacerbated the situation in an already fragile context, mainly causing: reduced availability of and access to food products, particularly due to the closure of the border with the Dominican Republic; increased food prices, including for staple foods such as beans, rice, sugar and vegetable oil; the slowdown/closure of economic activities; and market disruptions. In the framework of FAO’s Corporate COVID-19 Response and Recovery Programme and the United Nations Global Humanitarian Response Plan for COVID-19, FAO has therefore revised its humanitarian response for 2020 to mitigate the effects of the pandemic and address the needs of the most vulnerable populations.

    No results found.

    Somalia is facing a growing number of threats to its food security. The ongoing desert locust invasion, socio-economic effects of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic and recurrent climate shocks, including frequent flooding and drought, continue to severely impact the lives and livelihoods of the vulnerable population. With humanitarian needs expected to further increase in 2021, it is critical to enhance immediate food access, protect and restore livelihoods and strengthen the resilience of vulnerable households. Sustained humanitarian assistance is required to prevent the further deterioration of food security and nutrition.

    Burundi | 2021 Humanitarian Response Plan 2021
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    In 2020, Burundi was hit by devastating natural disasters, triggering population displacements and significantly affecting agricultural production. The situation was further worsened by the socio-economic impact of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and related necessary containment measures. In addition, a significant proportion of Burundian refugees returned to their home country, adding pressure to the already fragile humanitarian context. It is crucial to provide timely agricultural inputs to affected households to mitigate the effects of natural disasters and of the pandemic, while strengthening their resilience to shocks.
