iciHaiti - Social : 2.2 million Haitians in acute food insecurity
The last National Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) exercise in Haiti (October-December 2018) shows a significant deterioration in the food security and nutritional status of rural households. 2.2 million people are facing acute food insecurity (IPC Phase 3), including 386,000 in a food emergency (IPC Phase 4). The nutritional situation of children is particularly worrying, with global acute malnutrition rates well above the emergency threshold in some regions.

Between March and June 2019, 2.6 million people could be severely affected by food insecurity, including 571,000 in a food emergency. More than 37% of the rural population will need emergency food assistance, which will require a strengthened response.

Learn more about the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) :

Phase 1 :
Usually adequate and stable food access with moderate to low risk of sliding into Phase 3, 4, or 5.

Phase 2 : Moderately / Borderline Food Insecure
Borderline adequate food access with recurrent high risk (due to probable hazard events and high vulnerability) of sliding into Phase 3, 4, or 5.

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.

Phase 4 : Humanitarian Emergency
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.
