The Iraqi Ministry of Trade on Thursday reported that large quantities of wheat and barley have been spoiled due to recent bouts of extreme rainfall across many parts of the country. Fearing flash floods, multiple provinces have declared a state of emergency as several instances of torrential rains continued. Dams being filled amid continued precipitation and the increased flow upstream further exacerbated those concerns.
Drought is a recurrent feature of countries of Central Asia and the Caucasus, which requires careful management and mitigation in order to forestall costly damage to the economy, population, and environment. It is a complex phenomenon with greatly varying impacts depending not only on the magnitude, timing, duration, and frequency of precipitation deficits, but also on the differing responses of various soils, plants, and animals to water stress.
