Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, with a Human Development Index ranking of 169 out of 189 countries in 2019. According to the Human Capital Index, a child born today in Haiti will be only 45% as productive as an adult if they enjoyed full education and health. The latest official poverty estimated (2012) suggested that over 6 million Haitians lived below the poverty line of US$2.41 per day, and more than 2.5 million fell below the extreme poverty line of US$1.12 per day. Haiti remains highly vulnerable to natural hazards, mainly hurricanes, floods and earthquakes. More than 96% of the population is exposed to these natural hazards (World Bank, 2020).
