Haiti’s Food Security Challenges

PRIO Policy Brief

Hauge, Wenche Iren (2016) Haiti’s Food Security Challenges, PRIO Policy Brief, 28. Oslo: PRIO.

​During the two last decades Haiti has been hit by hurricanes, droughts, floods and a major earthquake. It may seem as though Haiti is condemned to suffer from natural disasters. However, the consequences of such disasters are to a large degree determined by the country’s vulnerability to them. Haiti’s extreme vulnerability to natural disasters is the result of human policies – not least international policies. The situation can therefore be reversed if there is political will.
