Haiti - CRISIS : ECOSOC very concerned by the deterioration of the situation
The UN Economic and Social Council's (ECOSOC) Ad Hoc Advisory Group on Haiti held a special meeting in the light of the worsening economic crisis, deteriorating humanitarian situation, growing insecurity and the persistent political stalemate in the country. Helen La Lime Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of the United Nations Integrated Office in Haiti (UNHIN) presented the state of teh situation.

The Group recognizes that the Haitian crisis is multidimensional in nature and will only be resolved through the leadership and ownership of the Haitian people and through a political solution. The Group calls on all Haitian parties to reject violence and urgently commit to resolving political differences peacefully through dialogue. Only through a comprehensive, inclusive and constructive national dialogue will it be possible to quickly chart a way forward in order to successfully address the political, social, humanitarian and economic challenges faced by the country, rebuild trust and shape a common vision for the country’s long-term development.

The Group recalls the need for and the primary responsibility of the Government of Haiti to address the longstanding drivers of instability and inequality in Haiti. The Group stresses that efforts towards an inclusive national dialogue should be complemented by measures to urgently help address the socio-economic and humanitarian needs of the most vulnerable sectors of the population.

The Group urges the international community to remain collectively engaged in support of Haiti. The Group expresses its grave concern at the deteriorating humanitarian situation in Haiti and stresses the importance of increased contributions from international partners to the Humanitarian Response Plan to ensure that the prevailing humanitarian and protection needs in the country are successfully and promptly met. The Group stresses the need to ensure safe and unhindered humanitarian access.
