On the morning of 5 October, Hurricane Matthew, the Caribbean's worst storm in nearly a decade struck Les Cayes and Jeremie in Haiti, affecting 1.4million people, and causing 336 deaths in seven departments from southeast to northwest. 

In response to Hurricane Matthew, as global lead of the ETC, the World Food Programme (WFP) is convening the Haiti ICT Working Group, collaborating with government, private sector and humanitarian partners on the ground to ensure a coordinated response.

An ETC2020 Project was conducted in Haiti, focusing on Improved and Decentralised Response Readiness, led by the US Department of State and World Vision International.
