Climate Change & Floods

Key messages by Hamid Sarfraz in a PTV live transmission on 2022 floods in Pakistan:
✧ Climate change is very much a reality and may reflect in flooding every year; hence, need to be taken as an ongoing challenge.
✧ Floods are caused by multidimensional factors; hence, need a multidimensional response.
✧ The institutional structure to cope with disasters needs a complete overhaul.
✧ Communities need to be trained on reading early warning signs, and to respond effectively.
✧ International community with high CO2 emissions need to realise the cost of inaction before it’s too late.
