Afghanistan Floods: Children pulled from floods

Unusually high rainfall, after a dry winter which has left the ground too hard to absorb water, led to massive floods that started in March this year. This was further compounded by unseasonably warm temperatures that melted snowpack cover into rivers, sweeping through entire villages, burying them under mud. Research conducted by WFP across the country shows increasingly erratic weather patterns exacerbated by the worsening climate crisis will significantly impact the ability of communities to feed themselves.

Afghanistan Floods: WFP Response

Within hours of the latest floods, WFP provided affected people with fortified biscuits and children with nutritional supplements. Working with local bakeries, WFP then distributed bread to communities most hard hit. By the end of last week, WFP started giving food rations to people in the affected districts, and providing cash assistance where markets were still functional.

SOT Gernot Laganda, WFP Director of Climate and Resilience(English):

Out of the three big drivers of hunger; conflicts, economic shocks, climate extremes, the climate dimension is the one that can be most reliably predicted and that also goes for the El Nino related droughts and floods. So we have what it takes to forecast these damaging events. We have we it  takes to protect lives before they need saving what we need to do is to make these systems and processes accessible and available also in fragile context where people are usually disconnected from this services.“

DR Congo Flooding: 

Heavier rainfall than usual during the rainy season, prompted by climate change, has forced rivers and lakes to overflow, swallowing towns, villages and roads on the shores. With farmlands swept away, crops destroyed, and roads cut off from regular trade routes, food is scarce, and rapidly becoming more expensive, and hunger is setting in for the people living in flood-affected areas. Over one million people are estimated to be impacted by flooding across the country and WFP is responding with food assistance in some of the worst affected areas.
