The European Commission has approved humanitarian aid worth euro 1.2 million for victims of flooding in Vietnam, Cambodia and Tibet (China). The aid will be managed by the European Commission Humanitarian Office (ECHO) and will enable humanitarian organisations to carry out urgent projects for the next three to six months. Torrential rainstorms far exceeding normal seasonal flooding have affected Vietnam since the end of October. The country has experienced its worst flooding for 40 years, with a total of seven million people affected across several provinces.

At the tail end of the monsoon season, when rains normally begin receding, cyclones, storms and floods have devastated several parts of Asia, killing thousands of people, making hundreds of thousands homeless and seriously threatening food supplies. In addition, economic damage to communications, transport, property and infrastructure has also been extensive and will require several months to rehabilitate.

Torrential rains resulted in widespread flooding, principally around the capital Phnom Penh in late October/early November, when 150 mm of rainfall was received instead of 30 mm in normal years. The worst affected areas were around Pursat, Battambang, Kg.Speu, Takeo and Kandal. Although thousands of people had to abandon homes, no serious casualties have been reported so far. The full extent of damage to the main rice crop, to be harvested shortly, is yet to be determined, though unconfirmed reports indicate that around 2 000 hectares had been affected.
