This new initiative aims to coordinate efforts more effectively, improve disaster preparedness and ensure real protection for the Haitian people.

Haiti has been in the midst of the 2024 hurricane season since 1 June, which is due to end on 30 November and is forecast to be hyperactive.

An official from Haiti’s National Emergency Operations Centre, Emmanuel Pierre, warned that the Antillean nation will face 23 named phenomena, including 11 potential hurricanes.

“All forecasts made for this hurricane season with Colorado State University indicate that it could be hyperactive,” Pierre emphasised.

We have put in place the national preparedness strategy for response to potential hazardous events in 2024 with several intervention logics, while defining priority axes.

We want to direct part of our efforts to the pre-positioning of goods and equipment for responses to climatic eventualities.

Geographically, from Port-au-Prince, where our central warehouse is located, there are many difficulties in reaching the peripheral levels, including the extreme north and the far south, Pierre said.

He attached great importance to improving the dissemination of information, warnings, communication with the population and the press.
