Overview

Climate change is severely impacting many countries around the world and Pakistan is no exception. With its largely arid geographical profile and resource scarcity the country is particularly vulnerable. From 1929-2005, the return period of disasters has become shorter, reducing from 56 years in 1929 to only 5 years in 2005. The country is susceptible to a wide range of hazards including landslides, floods, droughts and cyclones. The Global Climate Change Vulnerability Index (CCVI) compiled by Maplecroft ranked Pakistan as the 29th most vulnerable country over 2009-2010, and the 16th most vulnerable over 2010-11.
