This year’s floods caused by heavy rains in Pakistan and melting glaciers in the northern mountains have affected some 35 million people in the country with a population of about 220 million, causing $ 30 billion in damages to the government. The government of Pakistan and the US have blamed climate change for this disaster. Julian Harnis, the US Humanitarian Coordinator in Pakistan, said the $816 million target was not enough for the appeal.
