Description

October 5, 2010 - Pakistan is experiencing its worst monsoon flooding in at least 80 years. Government estimates put the number of people affected by the floods at 21 million. Millions of people have been displaced and over 1.8 million houses have been either damaged or destroyed. Assessments to establish the degree to which affected populations are in need of immediate humanitarian assistance continue.

Through this project, CIDA is supporting the UN Food and Agriculture Organization to assist flood-affected people in Pakistan resume their livelihoods and reduce their dependence on emergency assistance. Specific activities include the provision of seeds, fertilizers and tools to help small farmers prepare their fields for the upcoming planting season; the provision of supplementary feed and veterinary services to livestock; and, repairs to important agricultural infrastructure such as irrigation canals and drainage systems.
