Pakistan Floods 2010 - Executive Brief 28 September 2010
If immediate action is not taken to protect and restore agricultural production in flood-affected areas of Pakistan, farmers will continue to suffer losses long after the floods recede. Further depletion of livelihoods can be prevented and food assistance needs reduced in the longer term, if support is mobilized in time. Standing water covers 60-70 percent of Sindh, leaving farmers unable to plant and thousands of livestock stranded without feed.
FAO appealed for USD 107 million under the Revised Pakistan Floods Emergency Response Plan to assist approximately 743 250 families through crop, livestock, fisheries and forestry interventions, and to strengthen cluster coordination. To date, donor contributions amount to USD 20.5 million.
FAO is assisting 423 000 flood-affected families (3.4 million people) to plant in time for the Rabi wheat planting season ending in November (280 000 households), save livestock (133 000 households) and rehabilitate/repair small-scale irrigation (10 000 households).
