Pakistan is experiencing abnormal monsoon rainfall nearly ten times higher than usual, resulting in uncontrollable urban and flash floods, landslides, across the country. Gaining a full picture of the scale of the disaster is difficult as many affected areas remain inaccessible due to inundated and damaged road networks. T

he floods caused by the monsoon rains since mid-June 2022 has affected Balochistan, Sindh, Gilgit-Baltistan, Punjab, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) provinces of Pakistan. According to the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) as of the 26th August 2022, ca. 4.25 million people are directly affected by the floods as of today. The Ministry of Climate Change asserts that 30 million people are left without shelter. According to official reports, as of August 26, a total of 215,997 people are displaced in Government established relief camps. The initial damages show ca. 670,328 houses are fully or partially damages, the majority in Sindh followed by Balochistan. About 600 out of the total 800 schools affected by the floods are in Balochistan.

UPDATE:  

 

  • According to National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), more than 33 million persons have been affected by the humanitarian emergency caused by the floods, about 1,739 people have died and almost 8 million people have been displaced. Widespread damage has been reported to critical infrastructure, houses and livestock. 
  • The findings from a recent ECHO field staff’s visit to flood-affected areas in Sindh and Balochistan show that the situation remains dire with great extensions of land still covered by water. 
  • At least 1.85 million people remain still displaced, living in roadside spontaneous camps in poor conditions. A serious concern remains that many of the people returning are moved to places with no infrastructure, no shelter and residing on elevated areas with flood waters around.
  • According to WHO reports, malnutrition continues increasing, particularly in Sukkur, Khairpur, Larkana and Thatta districts in Sindh province, where up to 2.26% of children screened have Severe Acute Malnutrition with complications.
  • The needs are very high and not enough humanitarian aid is being received. Particularly, winterization remains critical.
