Haiti: Hurricane Matthew: Humanitarian Snapshot as of 8 Nov 2016 [EN]

Abstract

More than a month after Hurricane Matthew made landfall, the full scope of humanitarian needs is still growing. The staggering 80 to 100 per cent crop loss in the predominantly rural areas has jeopardized people’s livelihoods and food security, which will worsen in the coming months if farming activities are not restored during the fast-approaching planting season of mid-November. Humanitarian partners are ramping up operations in all three of the most affected regions of Grand’Anse, Nippes and Sud to deliver life-saving assistance such as food to 806,000 people, but funding for the operation remains scarce.

Résumé 

Plus d'un mois après le passage de l'ouragan Matthew, l'ampleur des besoins humanitaires ne cesse de croître. L'importantepertede80à100pourcentdesrécoltesdans les zones à prédominance rurale a mis en péril les moyens de subsistance et la sécurité alimentaire des populations.
La situation risque de s'aggraver dans les mois à venir si les activités agricoles ne sont pas rétablies pendant la saison
de plantation de mi-novembre. Les partenaires humanitaires sont en train de lancer des opérations dans les trois régions les plus touchées : Grand'Anse, Nippes et Sud, pour fournir de l’aide vitale, comme de la nourriture pour 806 000 personnes, mais le financement de l'opération reste insuffisant.
