This paper discusses key findings of the Third Review Under the Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility (PRGF) for Haiti. Despite external shocks, program performance was solid in the first half of FY2008, with all but one quantitative performance criteria (PC) met. Most structural conditionality was also met on time, although two PCs require waivers. The authorities’ revised program through end-September is based on a policy response that balances adjustment and financing, and safeguards macroeconomic stability. IMF staff supports the authorities’ response to the shocks.

On October 4, 2016 Haiti was struck by Hurricane Matthew, a strong Category 4 hurricane, which caused substantial loss of life and severe damage to property, infrastructure and agriculture. Total damage and loss is estimated at about US$1.9 billion, or about 23 percent of GDP. The impact has plunged Haiti into a new humanitarian crisis-7 years after a magnitude 7.0 earthquake ravaged Port-au-Prince-leaving an estimated 1.4 million people in need of urgent assistance. The hurricane forced a delay in the first round of the Presidential election, now scheduled for November 20.

This paper presents Haiti’s Sixth Review under the Extended Credit Facility and request for Waiver of Performance Criterion, and Augmentation of Access. Manufacturing activity would be hit the most, as the largest enterprises, including the important export textile sector, have been located in the Port-au-Prince area. The destruction of government and private buildings is also estimated to result in a sharp drop in government services, commerce, and tourism. Agriculture, the main growth driver, would be affected owing to widespread damages to the production systems in and around the earthquake area.
