iciHaiti - Covid-19 : Expected deterioration of the food security situation
Regarding the expected deterioration of thefood security situationdue to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, a first rapid market assessment was conducted by the National Food Security Coordination (CNSA) in collaboration with World Food Program (WFP).

The survey that was conducted in 11 communes, through phone calls to vendors and key informants, indicates reduced availability of products, in particular those locally produced, and an increase in prices of around 5%.

Vendors also reported increased limitations for the functioning of markets namely the low purchasing power of the households, the lack of access to water, sanitation and hygiene and handwashing materials and the liquidity shortages.

While food security sector partners were able to provide food assistance equivalent of one month's food ration to 331,000 people in the first trimester of 2020 (40% in-kind assistance, 60% direct cash transfers or vouchers), the food security response continues to be underfunded for the coming months.
