Razón de preocupación

The March to June 2017 Gu season was significantly below average in many areas. This follows below-average 2016 rainfall.

With the delayed start of season and erratic rainfall, the growing period for rainfed crops will be shorter than normal, likely result in substantially reduced yields in many areas.

Hurricane Matthew directly struck southwestern Haiti in early October, significantly damaging crops and infrastructure while disrupting livelihood activities.

Food assistance needs remain particularly high in Grand’Anse and Sud departments. Agricultural assistance needed to ensure success of the main Printemps 2017 agricultural season.

Razón de preocupación

Conflict and weak non-agricultural labor markets are inhibiting normal livelihoods and market access for many.
