    Kirehe District has been severely impacted by a number of climate hazards, including a protracted drought and recent strong rainfall, which have increased the risk of unprecedented run offs that, in turn, could result in flooding and landslides The destruction of homes, top soil erosion and crop submergence are among the disastrous consequences in marshlands, where more than 50 ha of rice crops have already been destroyed Kigarama Kigina Nyamugari Mahama Nyarubuye and Mpanga were six of the 12 sectors in Kirehe that were particularly affected Between January and March 2019 17 people were killed, 1 613 houses razed and 1 381 kitchens and toilets destroyed At least 3 954 ha of crops were damaged, with 90 household animals decimated Livelihoods are becoming a challenge in such areas, particularly since the majority of the population relies on casual agricultural labour and subsistence farming.

    Technical Support to Water and Soil Rehabilitation for Improved Climate Resilience in Golestan, Khouzestan and Lorestan Provinces - TCP/IRA/3703 2022

    Following spring floods in the Islamic Republic of Iran in 2019 the government requested FAO to assist the Ministry of Agriculture Jahad in the rehabilitation of the three most affected provinces of Lorestan Khouzestan and Golestan The agriculture sector in these provinces had suffered serious losses as a result of damage to land and water resources The recovery process was further impeded by the significant level of soil erosion caused by the flood and rainwaters The impact on soils will have longer term effects on land productivity and yields in these areas and, in some cases, it may be necessary to change land use, resulting in the loss of farms and creating a need for alternative livelihood opportunities for flood affected farmers that are resilient to climate change impacts and natural hazards In Lorestan and Khouzestan provinces, both of which have distinct ecological characteristics, the floods damaged not only farmlands but also agricultural infrastructures Lorestan province is a mountainous region with steeped farmlands and deep valleys The sudden over accumulation of rain destroyed bridges and orchards, and washed away three pumping stations, used to irrigate over 5 000 ha of farms Khouzestan province, on the other hand, is a flat plain with low elevation Three months after the floods, water logging and an increase in land salinity were observed in some areas, particularly in areas that are lower than the surrounding plain.
