Details

Pakistan has come a long way since its independence in 1947: the country’s population has grown from 33 million to 200 million, its literacy rate has increased from 11% to 58%, and its GDP is steadily rising (Government of Pakistan, 2017; World Bank, 2016). However, Pakistan is also one of the countries most affected by disaster and climate change in the world, and over 39% of its population still lives in the shadow of multidimensional poverty (Government of Pakistan, 2016). While in some districts of the country the effects of drought and poverty are hardly felt, in others they threaten communities with hunger.
