Iran Droughts

Main image
Iran faces a range of environmental challenges from high temperatures, pollution, flooding, and vanishing lakes. According to current assessments, parts of Iran are facing a rainfall anomaly which has had an observed impact on vegetation and agriculture. of particular concern is that these drought impacts have been observed in north-eastern Iran in areas bordering Afghanistan. IRCS estimates that 4.8 million people are at medium to high risk of drought-related impacts, mostly in remote and rural areas of the provinces. IFRC has launched an emergency appeal seeking CHF 9M to support the IRCS as they continue to respond to the drought, using an integrated programming approach with a focused impact through clearly interlinked sectorial activities while ensuring IRCS capacity is enhanced and further developed.
