Heavy seasonal rains in northern Benin and the rising waters of the Niger River in August 2012 resulted in severe flooding in the communes of Karimama and Malanville, particularly communities situated on the Niger River and its tributaries. In response to the flooding, WFP implemented a three month immediate response emergency operation in order to provide food assistance to flood affected people.
