Haiti – Urgent call for funding (September 2021–May 2022)
Sep 2021

On 14 August, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit the southern regions of Haiti, in particular the departments of Grand’Anse, Nippes and Sud. Two days later, Tropical Storm Grace’s torrential rains caused floods and landslides in the same departments affected by the earthquake, as well as in Sud-Est. Preliminary reports from the Departmental Directorates of Agriculture and FAO's partners indicate widespread damages to the agricultural sector. FAO’s urgent call for funding aims at providing a response to affected populations, by protecting and restoring the livelihoods of 32 000 rural households (160 000 people) affected by the earthquake and Storm Grace.
