Pakistan has declared a national emergency as massive floods attributed to climate change continue to devastate the country. Nearly half a million people have been displaced by record-breaking rains and flooding that have killed more than a thousand people, a third of them are estimated to be children. Over 30 million people have been affected by the disaster, and according to Pakistan’s Minister for Climate Change, “one-third of Pakistan is underwater right now, which has exceeded every boundary, every norm we’ve seen in the past.” Pakistan only produces less than 1% of CO2 emissions but remains one of the most vulnerable countries to climate crisis events.
