  • Months on from devastating floods in Pakistan, millions of people remain homeless, roads are destroyed and tens of thousands of schools and hospitals lie in ruins.

    At the COP27 climate summit, Pakistan's Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif called on Western nations to offer compensation to poorer, vulnerable countries like his, which bear the brunt of climate change.

    Pakistan’s government says the figure for losses and rebuilding after the floods now stands at more than $30bn.

    But the human cost is far higher, with more than 1,700 people dying in the floods and two million homes left damaged or destroyed.

    Maybe the should have invested in flood control measures. Americans get a lot of snow from Canada, should we make them pay?

    sourav jaiswal says:

    India and Bangladesh also experience frequent flooding. We take care of the problem by improving infrastructure rather than begging l.

    Just 3% to go, then they‘ll stop

    GrandMotorCrime says:

    C.I.A vibes, Pakistan needs some “freedom”!! White saviour complex never fails to be present.

    Klaus Schwab says:

    Pakistan is Monsoon area and half of Pakistan is literally a flood plain.

    Sazzbot says:

    I call for Pakistan to stop buying weapons and help its people.

    7rich79 says:

    I empathise with the people of Pakistan suffering as a result of climate change. However, I do think that a country capable of developing nuclear weapons should be capable of developing their nation to be more resilient too.

    Jon T says:

    its easier to build atomic weapons then it is to solve hunger and wealth inequality.even north korea did it.

    Jon T says:

    @John Smith so why did America give nuclear weapons to a pro terror state and bad state actor? is USA herself a sponsor of terrorism and a bad actor?

    GrandMotorCrime says:

    @Jambudvipi Keep beliving in children’s stories like Osama Bin Laden. Gobbling up anything your white masters feed you.

    GrandMotorCrime says:

    @Jambudvipi Taliban doesnt need foreign support, Americans leaving meant the war lord government collapsed. Spend a little less time chugging down urine and more time thinking.

    Grey Jedi says:

    Well put

    Jambudvipi says:

    *Question:* What did this country do with the billions in US$ ‘aid’ given to Pakistan for ‘fighting’ Taliban?

    *Answer:* Nuclear weapons and sponsoring terrorism against India

    Aditya says:

    its strange to see when so much people are affected by flood in pakistan and gov is asking world to donate but using money not for people but upgrading weapon like f 16 worth 450 million
    its seems very strange to me
    🙄🙄

    John Smith says:

    “While other countries arguably may or may not deserve compensation, surely Pakistan as a state sponsor of terrorism and a bad state actor is undeserving of any such compensation”

    Jackie Corley says:

    A couple a months a city Pakistan was on fire over 51° C thats weather

    Lacey Pelham says:

    the price of ignorance, inequality, misogyny and corruption. we need a better world and real leaders who see beyond the end of their own noses.

    LiquidSpiral says:

    Maybe they should focus their nuclear budget on helping their citizens

    SJ says:

    It’s true that equatorial and tropical countries suffer more from the climate change than any other regions. The highest contributors to the climate change experience lesser effects of it when compared to the most effected. It’s actually sad seeing this and how some people deny the climate change just because they can’t feel it enough.

    Peter Caden says:

    What accountability is there for funding going to nations notorious for corruption and mismanagement? A waste of funding that the needy will never see.

    Sam Carena says:

    Fixing corruption in Pakistan would go a long way to resolving Pakistan’s problems

    Charlie Mills says:

    Should places like Australia where climate change affects nearly everyone yearly get compensation the fires and floods there are just as destructive as many around the world I do agree there should be an independent world organisation who can come in and directly help those in need

    Damith Lakmal says:

    Developed countries need to do more than pay compensation to poor countries nevertheless citizens of poor countries also have a responsibility to elect honest politicians to govern their countries.
