The south Asian country has been hit with the deadliest floods in five years which have killed more than 1,300 people and affected at least 33 million, or 15% of the population. It is estimated that the floods have caused at least €10 billion in damages to infrastructure, homes and farms. Record torrential rainfall and melting glaciers in Pakistan's northern mountains led to dev- astating floods and submerged almost a third of the country's territory underwater. Unicef, the United Nations' children agency stated that more children were at risk of dying from diseases, due to a shortage of clean water. Aurélie Godet, a press officer with Médecins du Monde, told CNN that many children were going to their clinics with se- vere injuries on their feet, as they had no shoes. She explained that some peo- ple could not afford their reg- ular medicine due to price in- creases in medicine and food. According to the charity or- ganisation Action Against Hunger, 27 million people in the country did not have access to enough food prior the floods. The disaster further sparked the debate on climate change and ecological responsibility, as Pakistan produces less than 1% of the global greenhouse gas emissions but is extremely vul- nerable to the effects of climate change.
