WEBINAR - Floods in Pakistan: A look into past events and preparation for the future

Event details

Pakistan suffered devastating floods during the monsoon season of 2022 that resulted in over 1,700 fatalities, more than 7 million people displaced and over 20 million people in need of humanitarian assistance. The floods also wreaked havoc on the economy with an estimated $14.9 billion in damages and $15.2 billion in economic losses. In this seminar, we will hear the perspectives of Disaster Risk Management expert Abdul Waheed Sahibzada on this major flood event, as well as a historical and geographical context on flooding in Pakistan.

Mr. Sahibzada will also cover current preparations and planning that the Pakistan government is undertaking for the next monsoon season, and the role of nature-based flood management within this process. We will have ample time for discussion and Q&A so participants can share their experiences as well.
