Can Pakistan handle the worst flooding in decades?

 29 Aug 2022 ( News Bureau )

This year's monsoon rains in Pakistan have caused the most destructive floods in most people's memories.

Some provinces have received more than five times the average rainfall since June.

The climate change minister has called it a 'climate-induced humanitarian disaster of epic proportions'.

More than 1,100 people have died, and hundreds of thousands are homeless.

Can Pakistan cope with the resulting humanitarian crisis?
