Comments: The National Weather Service had advised that the current drought conditions in much of the country were expected to continue until the end of September or early October. Provinces at severe drought risk include Bougainville, Central, East New Britain, East Sepik, Enga, Jiwaka, Madang, Morobe, National Capital District, Western Highlands, West New Britain, and West Sepik. As the country approaches the wet season at the end of the year, much of the country is expected to receive above-average rainfall influenced by a La Niña event. However, the New Guinea Islands region tends to be drier during La Niña events and so chances of drought continuing in New Britain, New Ireland, Manus, and Bougainville is relatively high. (UNCT PNG, 9 Sep 2022) The Prime Minister Hon. James Marape says the Government is well aware of prolonged drought in several provinces of the country and is on standby to assist. PM Marape said East New Britain, New Ireland, Manus and parts of Morobe were also affected by the drought. (Govt. PNG, 20 Oct 2022)
