Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, and the second most densely populated. The country is ranked 77 out of 79 in the 2012 Global Hunger Index and suffers from a dramatic income gap. The poorest 40 percent of the population have access to less than 6 percent of the country’s income, while the richest 2 percent control 26 percent of the national wealth (IFAD 2012). Access to sufficient quantities of nutritious food remains an issue for millions of Haitians. An estimated 3.8 million Haitians, or 38 percent of the population, is food insecure (WFP 2012).
