November 2022 – Food insecurity is a sector of significant concern in Haiti. According to the latest Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) analysis, approximately 4.7 million people are experiencing acute food insecurity (IPC3), including 1.8 million in situations of acute food and livelihoods crisis (IPC4). Also, 19,000 people facing catastrophe levels of (IPC5), a first in the country’s recent history. The current increase in insecurity is further exacerbating humanitarian needs. With GAC’s support and other donors, the World Food Programme (WFP) provides additional emergency food assistance to crisis-affected people in Haiti. Project activities include: (1) distributing emergency food assistance; (2) providing cash-based transfers to most vulnerable households; (3) treating moderate and acute malnutrition for children under five, including pregnant and lactating women; and (4) improving delivery of essential supplies, including for the cholera response.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes of this project include: (1) increased access to food assistance for crisis-affected populations; (2) increased access to supplementary feeding for children under the age of five; and (3) increased access to humanitarian supplies or support. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated, and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
