iciHaiti - Agriculture : Food crisis, several communes in orange alert
According to Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET) of communes in the North West, South East and Central Plateau, remain in Crisis Phase 3 (on a scale of 5) of the IPC (Integrated Food Security Phase Classification).

An increase in rainfall in several departments across the country has reduced water deficit. However, rains are always erratic in the southern peninsula accusing deficits ranging from 50 to 200 mm in mid-October.

The late start of the second rainy season and dry periods recorded in September affected the second crops season. Rainfall forecast below normal increase the probability of production equally lower than the first season whose production is estimated at less than 50% of the average.

Poor harvests in progress and planned for the months of December and January and planned assistance programs for October-December, would lead to a reduction in the number of people food insecurity. Although beneficial, their effects will not allow switching to a better phase of the IPC classification for the area.

"Even with the current or intended humanitarian aid:
- The group of households has significant food deficits and suffers acute malnutrition at high levels or above normal;
- The group of households is barely able to cover the minimum food needs by exhausting the assets relating to livelihoods, which will lead to food consumption deficits."
