United Nations: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif says he has come to inform the world about the situation in Pakistan. The shock we are going through cannot be expressed in words. The international community must help. The Prime Minister addressed the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly with verses from the Holy Quran. Speaking, the Prime Minister said, “I am here to tell the story of Pakistan. My heart and mind are not ready to leave the memory of the motherland. I still feel as if I am visiting a flood-hit area.” Sindh or Punjab, no words can express the shock we are going through. I am here to say that the severity of the disaster caused by the climate crisis, which left one third of Pakistan under water, 40 days and 40 nights of heavy flooding that broke the century’s climate record, must be dealt with. Disaster and it. There is awareness of coping, even today most parts of Pakistan are submerged in water.

Continuing his speech, Shahbaz Sharif said, due to climate change, 33.3 million people including children and women are facing health risks, 650,000 pregnant women are forced to live in tents, more than 1500 people have died. Children, people are suffering from malnutrition. Flood-displaced people look for dry places to pitch their tents, offering condolences to the victims and their families. Those affected are deprived of employment for a long period of time. . According to preliminary estimates, 13,000 kilometers of roads and more than 1 million houses were destroyed and another 1 million were partially damaged, and 370 bridges were swept away. The devastating floods killed 1 million cattle, destroyed 4 million hectares of crops, the devastation is unimaginable. He said that there is no example of the dark and destructive effects of global warming in Pakistan. Life has changed forever, I have visited every disaster zone. People of Pakistan question why this disaster happened and what should and should be done, the undeniable fact is that what is happening is because of us. Our glaciers are melting fast, forests are burning and heat waves have exceeded 50 degrees and we are now experiencing an unusually severe monsoon. Pakistan does not account for even one percent of the carbon being sent into the Earth’s atmosphere.
