Haiti - Agriculture : The weather continues to affect the poorest households ..
In Haiti, markets are well supplied, both in local and imported products. Although the price of imported rice remains above average, it remains stable compared to other products.
The maize and bean harvest have started in Haiti, particularly in Grand’Anse, Nippes and the Southern Wet Mountains. While in the irrigated plains, maize and beans harvest are likely to be average, the drought-prone areas, including the Far North and coastal areas (Nippes, South) are likely to see significant crop losses.
Poor households will continue to depend on the market and rely on coping strategies to access non-food basic needs and will be facing Stress (IPC, Phase 2) food security outcomes. InHaiti, Crisis (IPC, Phase 3) outcomes will continue to affect the areas most affected by irregular rainfall, where the poorest households engage in negative coping strategies to access food.
Livelihoods are deteriorating as a result of high commodity prices https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-28299-haiti-flash-inflation-out-of-control-flies-to-186.html and the persisting drought hampering the spring 2019 growing season, particularly in the north of the country. The poorest households continue to engage in negative coping strategies to meet their food needs. As a result, most regions remain in Stressed (IPC Phase 2) or Crisis (IPC Phase 3) food insecurity.
