“I have seen many humanitarian disasters in the world, but I have never seen climate carnage on this scale.”

Devastation And Economical Loss To Pakistan Due To Floods

About a third of Pakistan is submerged by melting glaciers and record monsoon rains that began in June. Accordingly, it has caused colossal damage to homes, roads, bridges, rail networks, livestock and crops.

However, Minister of Finance Miftah Ismail estimated the total loss at $10bn amid a continuing economic crisis. On the other hand the independent analysts put the figure between $15bn and $20bn. They said that they fear it could rise further.

Moreover, the devastating floods have also caused serious damage to Mohenjo Daro. It has been a 4,500-year-old archaeological site in the southeastern Sindh province. UNESCO has designated it a World Heritage site.
