Unprecedented monsoon adds to soaring food inflation in Pakistan

An unprecedented monsoon has caused widespread devastation across Pakistan. It is also adding to the already escalating food inflation, aside from exacerbating fears of food insecurity. With food inflation already going through the roof at 30%, the ongoing monsoon spells have destroyed huge amounts of ready-to-reap crops across the South Asian country, causing shortages of staples, vegetables and fruits in markets and subsequently resulting in soaring prices of essential commodities.

The southwestern Balochistan province, which borders Afghanistan and Iran, has been the hardest hit, where torrential rains have destroyed large swathes of farmland and orchards in over dozen districts, which are major fruit suppliers not only to the province but to the rest of the country as well.
