Background

Call detail records (CDRs) are registered by mobile operators for billing purposes. They include information on the cell tower used by subscribers when sending and receiving text messages and making calls. In de-identified formats, they can be used to estimate mobility patterns of a population. The CDR analysis described here was undertaken in compliance with the GSMA privacy guidelines developed in the context of the Ebola outbreak (GSMA, 2014).

Key findings

Frustrations with the response

  • Some aid is reportedly being distributed according to political support, creating discontent and distrust. This is likely to persist in the run-up to 20 November elections.

  • Discontent could increase as the response remains slow, leading to more security incidents and protection concerns.

OVERVIEW

This thematic report is the first in a series of profiles on the worst affected departments in Haiti following Hurricane Matthew. It compiles and analyses existing pre-crisis data at the departmental level across a range of sectors and is intended to serve as a reference point for understanding the current humanitarian crisis.

Hazard profile: Sud is prone to natural disaster and has limited disaster risk reduction mechanisms. Exposure and vulnerability to hurricanes, floods, droughts, earthquakes are elevated compared even to the rest of Haiti.

Key updates since 12 October

Humanitarian access

  • Trust between people in need and aid workers has been hampered by several security incidents. Blockades and attacks on aid workers are reported in Jérémie, Les Cayes, Carrefour Charles, Chambellon, and Torbeck as people try to access aid.
    Road access has improved throughout Grand’Anse and Sud.

  • Peacekeepers are assisting in aid delivery.

Health

Overview

  • The hurricane had a major negative impact on livelihoods, infrastructure and roads. Widespread damage to subsistence production increases the reliance of households on markets for basic needs. At the same time, essential movement of money and goods has been severely constrained, with some departments cut off from the capital, resulting in localised shortages of basic items and price increases.
  • Households in Haiti were struggling to recover from several years of drought and the consequences of the 2010 earthquake.
