In recent times in 2022, Pakistan was hit by one of the devastating natural disasters in the form of flood. Around 33 million people have been affected by the heavy rains and floods, including at least 7.9 million people who have been displaced, of whom some 598,000 are living in relief camps. Nearly 800,000 refugees are estimated to be hosted in more than 40 calamity-notified districts. More than 2 million houses have been affected, comprising over 767,000 houses destroyed and nearly 1.3 million houses damaged. More than 1.1 million livestock have reportedly been killed. FAO assesses that some 9.4 million acres of crop area in Pakistan was potentially inundated in August.
