Rural communities of Pakistan were among the hardest hit by the devastating floods of June–August 2022. The disaster wiped out 1.7 million hectares of agricultural land and 800 000 heads of livestock, pushing millions of rural households into poverty and food insecurity. Around 14.6 million people are in need of food security and agricultural assistance. Restoring the livelihoods and food production of rural households is fundamental to the humanitarian response. The document provides an overview of the ongoing response of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in line with national priorities and the revised floods response plan (September 2022–May 2023).
