After Hurricane Matthew struck Haiti in October 2016, response actors estimated that as many as 35,000 families—approximately 175,000 people—in Grand’Anse and Sud departments whose homes were damaged or destroyed relocated to temporary shelters. USAID’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (USAID/OFDA) responded by distributing emergency shelter supplies, including plastic sheeting and shelter repair kits, to help displaced households return home quickly.
Southern and central areas continued to receive well above average rains in January
Poor rainfall was received in western and north-eastern SADC and Madagascar
The Fall Armyworm has been confirmed in 7 countries in the region. The severity of the impact on regional crop production is yet to be established
Tropical cyclones Carlos and Dineo affected the region in early to mid-February. The impacts of Cyclone Dineo are severe, particularly in southern Mozambique
100,000 people in Unity face Catastrophe (IPC 5) food outcomes between February and April 2017, up from 80,000 in January. Leer, Mayendit and Koch counties are most affected. Although pockets of famine were previously reported in August and September 2016, the food security situation has since significantly deteriorated, and this is expected to continue until the peak of the lean season in July 2017. Lack of humanitarian access to the affected areas is a further concern.
Ce document présente l’état de la sécurité alimentaire et des moyens d’existence dans les zones les plus affectées deux mois après l’ouragan Matthew.
Plus de 60% des ménages ont été directement affectés par Matthew, surtout en termes de dégâts sur les maisons, stocks et parcelles cultivées; 6% des ménages enquêtés sont encore déplacés ou accueillent des déplacés.
This paper presents the impact on food security and livelihoods in the most affected areas two months after Hurricane Matthew.
Over 60% of households were directly affected by Matthew, mainly in terms of damage to housing, stocks and cultivated plots;6% of households interviewed are still displaced or host displaced persons.
According to the latest results of the Emergency Food Security Assessment (EFSA), food insecurity halved in the areas most affected by Hurricane Matthew. However, high levels of food insecurity persist in the North-West, Artibonite and La Gonave regions, where little assistance was provided.
2.1 million affected people, of which 894,000 are children.
1.4 million people require humanitarian assistance.
806,000 people severely food insecure.
