About 4.4 million Haitians, 46% of the population, are food insecure, according to a report released by the National Food Safety Coordination (CNSA) on Friday.
About 12% of the population is classified as emergency, which is the most severe below the famine, and 34% of the population is in crisis, the report said.
Port-de-Pike (northwest), many parts of the southeast coast and the island of Conway are at risk of starvation.
The food situation is deteriorating due to the increase in food prices derived from the depreciation of the local currency zucchini; The document describes the poor performance of the winter harvest and “deficit reserves due to the lean season.”
The crisis values derived from the epidemic and the deep political crisis that Haiti is going through are other factors that have contributed to the reporting values that have contributed to the complication of the humanitarian situation.
The report warns that “food insecurity will not improve significantly in the coming months,” explaining that active hurricane season forecasts could have a negative impact on crop yields.
