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.

Haiti : Tableau de bord humanitaire (janvier - mars 2014)

APERÇU DE LA SITUATION

Entre janvier et mars 2014, la situation humanitaire a été marquée par la détérioration de la sécurité alimentaire dans le département du Nord-Ouest. Ceci est le résultat des effets combinés du manque de mécanismes d'adaptation viables en raison de l'extrême pauvreté de la population et des mauvaises récoltes de printemps et d’hiver, ainsi que la sécheresse prolongée depuis novembre 2013. Selon les estimations, 143 000 personnes sont touchées par cette situation.

Annual Letter 2014

Before joining USAID, I never could have imagined the depth of passion that exists for our nation’s leadership in global development.

When I was sworn in, people often asked me if I was worried about the unpopularity of development. According to nearly every poll, Americans wanted to cut foreign aid.
