What is the correct usage of “imperative”?

Consider the statement:

The drought we have suffered this year makes it all the more imperative to wisely use the stock of food we have.

Is this a correct usage of the word imperative? What may be the errors in the above statement? How should I correct them (it is preferred that the word imperative is retained)?


The colloquialism “all the more” makes the usage of ‘imperative’ harder to see/hear.

Remove that and the sentence sounds fine.
