    • The preparations for the Printemps campaign like plowing and other activities have started without anomalies in the whole country and sowing will take place after the first rains. Moreover, markets are well furnished in local produce (bananas, roots and tubers and beans) but the prices are high. Alternately, prices for imported food remain stable.

    • The plains in the Nord-Est and the Haut-Plateau have difficulties to recover from climatic shocks of previous months. This situation has affected certain households who had an insignificant production for the past campaigns of Automne and Hiver.

    • Moreover, in the Nord-Ouest and Nippes, above average rainfall has disrupted Hiver crops, affecting agricultural labor income. The crops that were expected to reach maturity in February were mostly destroyed (Baie de Henne, Bombardopolis, Mole Saint Nicolas, Jean Rabel etc.). This situation will be followed up in the upcoming update reports. 

    • The Nord-Est and the Haut-Plateau are meeting Crisis (IPC Phase 3) food security outcomes, due to climatic shocks mentioned above, and the rest of the country is in Minimal or Stress (IPC Phases 1 and 2) food security outcomes, with similar conditions since February.
