SITUATION REPORT: PAKISTAN DROUGHT
MARCH 7, 2014
SITUATION: Drought and resulting extreme food scarcity are imperiling life in District Tharparkar, one of 23 districts in the southern Pakistan province of Sindh.
As one example, in the last three months, at least 121 people have died as a result of what authorities believe are drought-related causes – this in the midst of hundreds of thousands migrating from the region because of precarious conditions.
