The likelihood of proceeding to seriously or severely dry conditions in the coming months is increased and suggests preparedness and early actions are advisable given the past and future seasonal data. Tuvalu’s reliability almost solely on rainwater for consumption indicates that continued monitoring and data collection would be of high value, as the situation can deteriorate rapidly. From Tuvalu Met Services EARWatch: ‘During the month of June, Nanumea, Funafuti and Niulakita was at drought, Nui was at drought warning. Tuvalu National Drought Committee (DC) was activated on 5 July and outcome was to meet weekly to provide updates on both thresholds (rainfall received, government water reserves).  
DR-2021-000119-IRQ Drought Iraq Iraq is frequently at odds with regional neighbours over water issues. The country depends on the Tigris and Euphrates rivers for nearly all of its water. Millions of Iraqis face an intolerably harsh summer, which is causing alarm and creating major water shortages in the country. The rivers, which account for more than 90 per cent of Iraq’s freshwater, were at historically low levels due to a lack of winter rainfall in the region and snowmelt, primarily in the mountains of southern Turkey, which feeds into the rivers. 
OT-2021-000118-TJK Other Tajikistan Conflict in Afghanistan induced displacements (as of 08 August 2021). From 1 January 2021 to 24 July 2021, 389,645 individuals fled their homes due to conflict. A total of 32 out of 34 provinces had recorded some level of forced displacement. Constrained humanitarian access hinders assessments, thus preventing verification of the full extent of displacement and undermining the provision of assistance and services. Displacement affects all individuals differently with needs, vulnerabilities and protection risks evolving over time due to exhaustion of coping mechanisms and only basic emergency assistance provided following initial displacement. Inadequate shelter, food insecurity, insufficient access to sanitation and health facilities, as well as a lack of protection, often result in precarious living conditions that jeopardies the well-being and dignity of affected families.
