iciHaiti - Northeast : Excess moisture compromises bean and rice plantations
Rainfall has improved with the exception of Nippes and the Northwest. This favors crop development, except in the North East, where excess moisture compromises bean and rice plantations. In addition to the summer/fall harvest, plowing activities are launched for the winter season. In rice-growing areas, crops continue in parallel with the transplanting activities. In the center, peanuts and pigeon peas have been harvested since October.

The demand for farm workers is marginal, most very poor households engage in subsistence activities such as petty trading and the sale of coal. In border areas, migration is still an alternative to the deterioration of the country's socio-economic conditions.

Between September and October, prices of imported rice and local maize increased slightly (1% and 3% respectively); that of black beans fell slightly (1%). Nevertheless, their prices remain above the five-year average, limiting food access for the poorest households.

Most regions are reported to be food insecure Minimale (IPC Phase 1) and Stress (IPC Phase 2). A limited number of households in drought-affected areas (North-East), who are still struggling to recover, or who live in highly vulnerable localities in the Haut-Plateau, Nippes and North-West, may be in difficulty. Crisis (IPC Phase 3)

Phase 3 : Acute Food and Livelihood Crisis
Highly stressed and critical lack of food access with high and above usual malnutrition and accelerated depletion of livelihood assets that, if continued, will slide the population into Phase 4 or 5 and / or likely result in chronic poverty.

Severe lack of food access with excess mortality, very high and increasing malnutrition, and irreversible livelihood asset stripping.

Phase 5 : Famine / Humanitarian Catastrophe
Extreme social upheaval with complete lack of food access and / or other basic needs where mass starvation, death, and displacement are evident.
