UN chief: Pakistan is most impacted even though it has made the least contribution to climate change

United Nations (UN) Secretary-General António Guterres has said that Pakistan was one of the countries most affected by climate change despite its minimal contribution to the phenomenon.During a briefing at the National Flood Response Coordination Centre (NFRCC) with Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Guterres stated, “Pakistan has had little contribution to climate change but [it] is [one of] the most dramatically impacted by the consequences of climate change.”

He’s in the country for two days.Even though Pakistan estimates that the losses from the floods total about $18 billion, the UN has launched an appeal for $160 million in aid to help the country deal with the disaster.According to the head of the UN, those who are more to blame for causing global warming should be the ones facing obstacles since climate change has targeted the wrong people.

“The international community has a responsibility to enormously support Pakistan in this situation and a responsibility to take the need to significantly reduce emissions seriously, while also supporting nations that need to invest in resilience and recovery,” he said.Officials from the Pakistan Army and federal ministers Ahsan Iqbal and Sherry Rehman were also present.
