The impacts of Flooding on Food Security

Food is a primal need of humans. It is key to building and sustaining a healthy economy, achieving social and environmental wellness, which are the three bottom lines of sustainable development. Unfortunately, Nigeria inflation has hit a 17-year high of 20.8% leading to soaring food prices. According to the Consumer Price Index (CPI) report released by the NBS, inflation rose by 20.8% in September, the highest rate since 2005, up from 20.52% recorded in the previous month.

On October 11th, AFRICA’S largest rice farm, Olam Rice Farm worth over $15 million, was ravaged and submerged by rising flood in Nasarawa State which could potentially increase the price of rice in the coming months. Thousands of hectares of rice farms in Taraba, Jigawa, Kano, Benue, Niger, Kogi, Kebbi, among other producing states up North, have also been reportedly washed away. In Taraba State, one of the leading rice-producing states in the country, farmers say about 90 percent of farms were destroyed by flood.

Today, the country is faced with the disaster of flooding which is now recurrent in the hinterlands and pose a threat to further inflation in the prices.
