An international network, Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS), reported that the April floods in Afghanistan affected 10,000 hectares of agricultural land.

The organisation stated that the recent floods in Afghanistan have resulted in the destruction of agricultural crops.

In a report published on Friday, examining the situation in Afghanistan, Yemen, Lebanon, and Gaza, the network mentioned that the effects of multiple shocks are increasing food insecurity across the region.

The report highlighted that following a three-year drought in Afghanistan, the food security crisis persisted in the northern, northeastern, and western parts of the country.

The report also noted that the return of Afghan migrants from Iran and Pakistan is likely to sustain acute food insecurity in the southern and southeastern regions of Afghanistan.

FEWS reported that the World Food Programme distributed humanitarian food aid to about 7.6 million people in Afghanistan in March this year, including 665,000 migrants who returned from Iran and Pakistan.

The report further mentioned that the April floods displaced 6,000 families in eastern and southeastern Afghanistan.

Recently, the United Nations announced that after consecutive years of drought, the people of Afghanistan are vulnerable to natural disasters such as floods.

The World Food Programme stated that more than 80,000 people were affected by the floods in northern Afghanistan, and USD 14 million is needed to address the consequences of the floods.
