 Business Brief: Humanitarian Overview and Call to Action 
Pakistan Floods Response Plan (12 September 2022)

OVERVIEW OF THE CRISIS

Pakistan has been enduring severe monsoon weather since June 2022, which saw areaweighted rainfall 67 per cent above normal levels in that month alone. Rainfall in the country is equivalent to 2.9 times the national 30-year average. This has caused widespread flooding and landslides, with severe repercussions for human lives, property and infrastructure. To date, 81 districts across Pakistan have been declared ‘calamity hit’ by the Government of Pakistan.
These numbers remain dynamic given the ongoing rains, and the number of calamity-declared districts are expected to increase.

The Government of Pakistan estimates that around 33 million people across the country are affected by the rains, floods and consequent impacts such as landslides. More than 800,000 refugees living in calamity-declared districts are also affected or at risk. According to the NDMA as of 8 September, at least 1,400 people were killed and 12, 700 people injured, with numbers increasing as rains continue.
