The first IPC Chronic Food Insecurity analysis conducted in Honduras has allowed to estimate that 9 of the 10 departments of the Dry Corridor of the country are in Level 3 (Moderate Chronic Food Insecurity); and a department (Francisco Morazán) in Level 2 (Mild Chronic Food Insecurity). IPC Chronic Food Insecurity Analyses results are valid up to 5 years, in absence of unusual shocks.

  • 23% of the analyzed households are in Levels 3 (17%) or 4 (6%). For these households, food consumption presents a deficit of dietary energy for at least 2 months a year and every day they do not consume a proper diet. These households are characterized by low purchasing power, which is aggravated by the constant increase of food prices, reflecting this condition in an access to an inadequate diet in terms of quality, reaching high rates of malnutrition, especially chronic malnutrition.
  • 35% of households have been classified in Level 2, which means that they regularly access a diet adequate in quantity but not always in quality.
  • According to the protocol established by the IPC, urgent action will be required in Level 3 households to address the underlying factors, to increase the quality and quantity of food consumption, in addition to the implementation of policies, programs and projects to reduce chronic malnutrition, prioritizing actions in those municipalities with higher rates in the context of the department.
