Haiti: Humanitarian Dashboard (January - March 2014)

SITUATION OVERVIEW

Between January and March 2014, the key humanitarian concern revolved around the deterioration of the food security in the North-West Department. This is the result of the combined effects of the lack of viable coping mechanisms due to the extreme poverty of the population and the poor spring and winter harvest as well as the prolonged drought since November 2013. An estimated 143,000 people are affected by this situation.

However, precipitation forecasts indicate the potential for locally heavy rainfall in the Benguela and Cuanza Sul provinces, which may provide some relief to moisture stress in the country.

Haiti Price Bulletin April 2014

All cooking oil is imported and rice imports account for about 80 percent of national needs.
