Former Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa is said to be responsible for banning imports of chemical fertiliser, which has cut rice production in half. It is being blamed for helping to bring the country to the brink of a food emergency. In just three years, the Sri Lanka that long been a rice exporter was forced to Import their staple food. Most smallholder farmers in Sri Lanka say they will not be irrigating their fields in the current growing season, which runs from May to August and is known as the Yala season. They say the fertiliser ban induced crop failures, coming amid nationwide fuel shortages, make farming untenable.

Hundreds of people in Sri Lanka have been protesting against shortages of basic essentials, caused by a foreign currency crisis. The government has debt payments to make, and has refused to seek international bailouts. It says it can handle the crisis on its own. Months of skyrocketing prices and shortages of food, medicine, cooking gas and fuel have made Sri Lankans angry and frustrated. To make matters worse, they have suffered through the longest power cuts to be imposed in more than 25 years. Seven and a half hour interruptions a day are causing chaos among all segments of the population. Sri Lanka’s public utilities regulator says it has been pushing to solve the power crisis.

Sri Lanka’s health system is on the brink of collapse as the country descends further into economic crisis, with leading doctors warning that the nation could see more deaths due to the shortages than during its devastating civil war. The country is in the grips of the world’s worst economic crisis. Gross economic mismanagement means it owes over £21 billion to lenders, but only has £1.7 billion of foreign exchange in reserve. Sri Lanka simply cannot afford to import essential medicines from abroad, while it lacks domestic manufacturers. On April 4, the entire Sri Lankan cabinet, apart from President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and his brother Mahinda, the Prime Minister, resigned as the country was gripped by nationwide protests over inflation, which has soared to the highest rates in Asia.

Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaska declared a state of emergency over food shortages as banks ran out of foreign exchange to finance imports. He named a top army officer as "Commissioner General of Essential Services" to coordinate the limited supply of paddy, rice, sugar and other groceries. Long queues have formed outside stores and supermarkets. Many shelves are already empty. Milk powder and cooking oil are virtually impossible to get. People have also had to wait for hours to fill their motorbikes, rickshaws and cars with gasoline. The energy minister has appealed to motorists to use fuel sparingly, warning that it could be rationed by the end of the year unless consumption was reduced. The Asian country is suffering from the economic fallout of the pandemic. The economy shrank 3.6 percent last year. And even though growth has returned, the money shortage means that the government cannot even buy enough medicine to supply its hospitals. Sri Lanka has received 787 Mmillion dollars from the International Monetary Fund and 150 million dollars from the Bangladesh Central Bank. This was all part of an effort to boost the struggling nation's foreign exchange reserves which have been depleted as it struggles to recover from the coronavirus pandemic. The kind of funding that the IMF has sent to the island is called a "Special drawing Rights" it's a special kind of international reserve asset and its very rarely used last in 2009.

Sri Lanka may be on a brink of bankruptcy as the island country faces an acute financial crisis topped by a blow to a food supply. As 2022 begins, Sri Lanka is looking to face record-high inflation, financial crisis, exorbitant food prices, humanitarian crisis, and pandemic-induced disruptions. The Sri Lankan government had decided to temporarily ban the use of chemical fertilizers in May 2021. The ban led to protest by farmers ultimately leading to a drastic drop in cultivation in Sri Lanka. Moreover, long queues were seen outside shops for bare necessities lie milk, sugar, and rice. Also, several shops in the markets were shut. Opposition MP Harsha de Silva told Sri Lankan parliament that the country would go bankrupt. #SriLanka #FinancialCrisis #FoodCrisis

On August 31, Sri Lankan president Gotabaya Rajapaksa declared an economic emergency in the island nation. The president’s move was triggered by rising food prices, depreciating currency and depleting forex reserves. A depreciating currency, high dependence on imports and hoarding led to a steep rise in food prices in Sri Lanka. In early 2021, the Rajapaksa govt imposed a ban on the use of chemical fertilizers in farming. The insecurity caused by the organic-only policy led to hoarding and rapid price rise.
