Pakistan Floods 2011 - Executive Brief 28 October 2011
Heavy monsoon rains beginning in mid-August have led to severe flooding in southern Pakistan. Sindh province has been hardest hit, with nearly all of the deaths, casualties and damages caused by the floods, spread across all 23 districts. The floods have affected over 9.3 million people. An estimated 70% people in the affected areas rely on agriculture. Nearly 0.88 million hectares of standing crops have been lost, over 116 000 livestock are dead, an estimated 5 million animals are at risk, and around 20 400 irrigation structures are submerged in Sindh.
FAO can prevent further livestock deaths and missed planting opportunities with timely donor support, saving families from a domino effect of continued losses. FAO seeks USD 18.9 million, out of overall Food Security Cluster funding requirements of nearly USD 174 million appealed for in the Pakistan Floods Rapid Response Plan 2011.
