In Bangladesh, the floods are still worsening, affecting nearly 1.4 million people. It is estimated that nearly half of all regions of the country will be affected in the coming weeks.

The United Nations Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) provided UN agencies with $5.2 million in early financing to help vulnerable families.

In China, heavy rains and floods have affected the country since June, affecting more than 38 million people in 27 provinces, the Chinese government has not requested any international assistance, and the United Nations is ready to provide support if necessary.

In Nepal, floods and landslides have killed more than 100 people. Landslides in remote areas have hampered search and rescue efforts, delaying response in these areas.

Dujarric added that with more rain and floods expected, the country humanitarian team is discussing more monsoon preparedness measures and more coordination with its district-level counterparts, the United Nations is ready to provide additional assistance to those in need in Nepal.
