In 2017, South Asia was impacted by large-scale natural and human-caused disasters.
• The dominant feature of the 2014 season across East Asia so far has been widespread rainfall deficits that led to delayed starts of the growing season across vast areas of the continent.
• Conditions were worst around mid July, followed by a general improvement, which still left moderate rainfall deficits as the predominant pattern. SE Pakistan has been the worst affected area, in particular for livelihoods dependent on rainfed agriculture and pastoral resources.
This map illustrates the estimated total rainfall from 1
July 2007 to 31 July 2007 over the flood-affected areas of Bangladesh,
India and Nepal at a spatial resolution of approximately 10km, and was
calculated using microwave and infrared data from geostationary satellites.
Rainfall levels are shown in millimeters, and were obtained from the Rainfall Estimation Algorithm (RFE 2.0) dataset, provided by the NOAA Climate Prediction Center. For more information please see www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov.
