Haiti - Emergency Food Security Assessment, February 2016

WFP, in collaboration with, the Haitian National Coordination for Food Security Office (CNSA), conducted an assessment of the food security situation of vulnerable households in areas considered the most affected at the time. The Emergency Food Security Assessment (EFSA) was carried out in December 2015.

Approximately, 2,600 households in 3 livelihood zones within 9 departments and 43 communes were assessed. WFP CARI methodology was used to estimate the food security index (FSI) which represents the population’s overall food security status and combines the food consumption (FCS), food expenditure share, and livelihood coping strategies indicators.
