Relief Food Assistance for Drought-Affected Populations in Northern Afghanistan

ID: 
200366
Summary: 

 .

Body Text: 

This operation has been modified as per Budget Revision 1 (see below).

Afghanistan is experiencing one of its worst droughts in a decade. The most recent rainfall season (November 2010 to April 2011) was extremely poor, especially between November and January. The exceptional lack of precipitation is having severe repercussions in the north, northeast, central highlands and northwest parts of the country, with substantial losses of rainfed wheat crops, below-average irrigated wheat crops, and poor pasture conditions.
