    • Despite poor secondary season belg rains, the 2008 meher crop has recovered strongly from earlier expectations due to abundant rainfall in major producing areas which continued through October, benefiting late sown crops. • In 2008, encouraging progress was made by the the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MoARD) and the Central Statistics Authority (CSA) in reconciling the long standing differences in crop area estimates through the EC-funded, FAO project “Support to Food Secur ity Information System”.

    At the request of the government, a joint FAO/WFP Crop and Food Security Assessment Mission (CFSAM) visited Sri Lanka from 11 to 31 March 2023 to estimate the 2023 crop production, forecast the country’s cereal import requirements for the 2023 marketing year, and assess household food security conditions. The request was prompted by expectations of a below‑average agricultural output for the second consecutive year in 2023, owing to the effects of the severe macroeconomic crisis that limited imports of most agricultural inputs. To gather information on the conditions of the agriculture sector and household, and nutrition security, the mission held extensive meetings with staff of various government institutions, in particular the Ministry of Agriculture (MoA), the Ministry of Irrigation (MoI) and the “Mahaweli” Authority, the Ministry of Fisheries (MoF) and the National Aquaculture Development Authority (NAQDA), the Ministry of Finance, Economic Stabilization and National Policies (MoFESNP), the Ministry of Trade (MoT), the Department of National Planning (DNP), the Department of Census and Statistics (DCS), the Department of Meteorology, the Paddy Marketing Board (PMB), the National Fertilizer Office, the Agriculture and Agrarian Insurance Board (AAIB), the Central Bank of Sri Lanka (CBS) as well as traders, rice and wheat millers ,and agriculture input importers. In addition, the mission held consultations with staff of the World Bank (WB) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
