Pakistan is suffering extensive flooding after unusually heavy monsoon rains lashed large parts of the country.

Flash floods fuelled by the climate crisis have affected more than 33 million people, officials have said. More than 75% of Balochistan, the country’s largest and most impoverished province, has been affected by floods, and much of neighbouring Sindh province is under water.

Pakistan has more glaciers – 7,532 – than anywhere else outside the polar regions, making it one of the countries most exposed to extreme weather.
