Pakistan floods: “When you lose a house, nothing makes you happy anymore”

Community members in Punjab mourn the loss of their way of living and family history, after their village was destroyed by the 2022 Pakistan floods. As one activist describes, the fundamental injustice of climate damage is that nations like Pakistan make a relatively minor contribution to climate change but bear some of the worst impacts. Pakistan's 2022 monsoonal floods affected 33 million people across the country and claimed more than 1730 lives. Climate change has been identified as a contributing factor to the increasing frequency and severity of floods in Pakistan. Rising temperatures and changing weather patterns are causing more intense rainfall and extreme weather events, leading to more frequent and severe flooding. Pakistan emits less than 1 per cent of the greenhouse gases driving the climate crisis but stands to be among the worst impacted nations. This film was made by British-Pakistani artist and filmmaker, Seemab Gul, and commissioned by Greenpeace International.
