Haiti: Current Acute Food Insecurity Overview Dec 2014 - March 2015

08/12/2014 - 31/03/2015
Haiti
Description

All areas analyzed were classified maximum in phase 2 where the food situation is under pressure. Compared to the last IPC analysis conducted in April 2014, the situation has generally improved in the arid areas which were mostly in food crisis at that time (phase 3).

 

The changing rainfall pattern was irregular and in deficit during the spring growing season (March / July 2014). These conditions have impacted on important agricultural practices (few daily jobs, modest income opportunities) and crop yields. Crops and tubers have significantly decreased (-40 % compared to 2013). The rainfall deficit in areas with low agricultural potential and lack of public investment (especially in agricultural inputs) as well as in areas with the greatest potential have did not allowed a sufficient level of crops. Stagnant food prices and deployment support programs for the most vulnerable have somewhat minimized the negative impact on the food access of households, even if they are still forced to resort to unsustainable coping strategies.
