Past disaster

Disaster description

In 2012, Moldova suffered the combined impacts of poor rainfall and extremely high temperatures, which resulted in major losses in the national crop production. The 2012 drought was part of a regional phenomenon, which affected large parts of the Black Sea region, the Balkans and Central Europe. On 6 Aug, the Prime Minister announced that Moldova’s agrarian sector was in an acute need of international aid to mitigate the effects of the prolonged unfavourable weather conditions.
