Caribbean Food Security and Livelihoods Survey

After facing successive crises and devastating natural hazards over the last years, many people in the Caribbean are struggling to earn a living and meet their food and other critical needs. The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) launched the Caribbean Food Security and Livelihoods Survey, implemented by the World Food Programme, to gather data on people’s livelihoods, access to markets and food security, and provide snapshots of these impacts over time. Data collected over six survey rounds highlight the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the cost of living crisis and the effect of natural hazards on food security and livelihoods in the region. The survey includes a dashboard that provides quick access to the findings for all Caribbean countries covered by the survey.
