Pakistan needs billions to rebuild after flooding | DW News

In 2022, excessive rainfall put one-third of Pakistan underwater, killed close to 2,000 people and displaced 33 million others. And millions of homes were damaged or destroyed. The World Bank has estimated total costs for reconstruction and rehabilitation at around 16 billion US dollars. Scientists have since concluded that the heavy rainfall was made more likely by climate change.

Pakistan’s climate envoy Sherry Rehman was at the Petersberg climate dialogue in Berlin. DW’s Biresh Banerjee spoke with her earlier about her view on the current state of climate finance.
