Information Management (IM) Programme OFFICER
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE OF THE ASSIGNMENT:
Haiti’s Human Development Index (HDI) ranks 170 out of 189 countries in 2020. Rates of extreme poverty and poverty are high and their cause is multidimensional. This poverty is manifested in particular by high illiteracy rates, a life expectancy of 63.7 years in 2018, high infant mortality and significant gender inequalities. A large majority of the population does not have access to basic services such as drinking water, electricity, sanitation and health coverage.
In addition, Haiti is vulnerable to natural disasters. It is considered the fifth most exposed country to natural disasters. The country has suffered, in less than ten years, more than four major disasters from which the country is still struggling to recover: the earthquake of 2010, tropical storm Isaac and hurricane Sandy in 2012, hurricane Matthew in 2016, hurricane Irma and Maria in 2017 and the earthquake of 2021. The country is therefore exposed to earthquakes, the passage of cyclones and also to drought waves linked to the El Nino phenomenon (2018).
Beyond these factors, food insecurity is driven by the poor performance of the agricultural sector combined with the strong dependence on imports of food products (more than half of the food products present on the market) in particular for rice (83%). Product prices are largely influenced by logistical challenges, high production costs, precarious market structures and high inflation rates in recent years.
The latest IPC (Integrated Food Security Classification) results presented in March 2022 report that 4.5 million people will need food assistance in Haiti between March and June 2022 (including 1,3 M of people in IPC 4—Emergencies), which represents 45% of the Haitian population.
These worrying results are largely linked to  the political crisis that has taken hold in the country since July 2018 which has led it into an economic and social crisis,  to an agro-climatic crisis with significant pockets of drought in the country causing a significant decrease in agricultural production. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has contributed to the increase in food insecurity. The growing insecurity and the blocking of certain access points to the country, in particular the road leading to the Great South, have worsened the indicators of food insecurity.
Thus, the World Food Program in Haiti has defined its strategy to fight against hunger in the Country Strategic Plan [CSP 2019–2023] which provides, among other things, for activities related to emergency food assistance to populations affected by a shock, the establishment of nutrition-oriented social safety nets, the strengthening of the capacities and livelihoods of small producers as well as their resilience in the face of climate change in particular, and the strengthening of the capacities of national and local actors to the fight against hunger. A new CSP exercise will take place in 2022 to determine the 2024–2028 plan.
The multiplication of operations entails an additional need for human resources, in particular to guarantee good management of all the information useful to support the internal and external decision-making and communication processes at WFP. The WFP then requires an information manager at the level of Port au Prince to support the Program unit in its entirety.
