BARBADOS – CARICOM Secretariat launched the second round of the Caribbean COVID-19 Food
Security and Livelihoods Survey to capture the current state of affairs and analyse how livelihoods,
food security and markets have shifted over the past few months, since initial COVID-19 containment measures were put in place.

This survey follows an initial survey conducted in early April 2020 that highlighted disruption to
livelihoods and impacts on food security in the initial stages of the COVID-19 response.

This brief survey is open to all CARICOM Member States and Associate Members, as well as Aruba,
Curaçao and Sint Maarten until 6 July 2020 and is available in English, French and Spanish.
