From Drought to Prosperity through Community Development (2008)

The 2007 summer drought severely compromised the harvest in over 80 per cent of Republic of Moldova’s agricultural lands. Thus, the financial and food security of a great number of agricultural producers, families living in rural areas, and especially socially vulnerable citizens, was severely affected.

The Prime Minister of the Republic of Moldova addressed the UN Secretary General about the need for assistance in overcoming the drought, and the United Nations (UN) responded promptly by launching the “Relief and Technical Assistance Response to the Drought in Moldova” project in the fall of 2007.
