Sindh province of Pakistan is marked with a high prevalence of food insecurity, malnutrition and poverty. In 2021, the food security situation further deteriorated because of high food and fuel prices, drought, and impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Around 2.3 million people (23 percent of the rural population analysed) are estimated to be in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis) and Phase 4 (Emergency) in the current period (October 2021-March 2022), corresponding to the planting/lean season. These include around 1.7 million people (17 percent of the rural population) in IPC Phase 3 and around 0.63 million people (6 percent of the rural population) in IPC Phase 4 across the nine districts analysed. All districts have at least 5 percent of their population in IPC Phase 4, and except for Badin and Dadu, the other seven districts have between 20-30 percent of their populations in IPC Phase 3 or 4. Urgent action is therefore required to protect livelihoods and reduce food consumption gaps of people in Crisis and Emergency phases of acute food insecurity. Out of the nine analysed districts, seven districts, namely Jamshoro, Mirpur Khas, Sanghar, Sujawal, Tharparakar, Thatta and Umerkot are classified in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis), whereas Badin and Dadu are classified in IPC Phase 2 (Stressed).

The drought has become a frequent phenomenon in Pakistan. The drought in 1998–2002 is considered worst in 50 years. According to the Economic Survey of Pakistan, the drought is one of the factors responsible for poor growth performance. Recent drought/drought-like conditions have been prevailing since 2013 which have impacted livelihood and food security in parts of Sindh and Balochistan, particularly in western, central and southern districts of Balochistan and south eastern and western districts of Sindh. Pakistan’s agricultural sector has been struggling for years in the face of drought and short water supplies, now Locust infestation will add further damage to this sector that provides food and livelihoods to thousands of communities.
