As you know, the 2014/2015 growing season has been one of the
worst seasons. You will recall that during this growing season, rains started very late, in mid- December, 2014. From the onset of rains in mid-December, 2014, through to mid-January, 2015, the country received continuous heavy rainfall that led to the worst flooding in living memory. The floods affected about 1.1 million people. It damaged people’s property and public infrastructure and at least 64, 000 hectares of crop fields throughout the country, mostly in the Southern Region. 106 people were killed and 172 people were reported missing.
