Flood Disaster in Pakistan and its Impact on Agriculture Growth (A Review)

Abdul Rehman


The main aim of this paper is to study the flood disaster in Pakistan and its impact on agriculture growth of Pakistan during the flood period of 2010-2014. Pakistan has during the last five consecutive years of 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 faced floods and flash floods. It has been responsible for damages to crops, seeds, households, food grains, livestock and infrastructure. In September 2014, heavy monsoon rains and floods in the catchment areas of India's eastern rivers of Jhelum, Ravi, Sutlej, and Chenab, resulted in flash floods in Punjab, Gilgit Baltistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJ&K). Over 1 million acres of cropland and 250,000 farmers were affected, in most cases resulting in the loss of standing food, fodder or cash crops.
