The latest IUNG-PIB report reveals that from May 1 to June 30, 2024, Poland's Climatic Water Balance (CWB) was -121 mm, indicating a worsening water deficit. The most affected regions are the Masurian Lake District, Polesie, Lublin Upland, Masovian Lowland, and Podlasie, with deficits ranging from -160 to -229 mm.


Agricultural drought is now present in all 16 Polish voivodeships, affecting twelve types of crops. Spring cereals and rapeseed are particularly impacted, with drought affecting over 70% of Polish communes. The IUNG-PIB urges immediate action for better water management and climate adaptation strategies to prevent further deterioration and potential threats to food security.


Santander Bank warns of possible price increases for fruits and vegetables in the second half of the year due to ongoing drought conditions.
