Pakistan is at high risk from climate change and natural disasters. Events such as earthquakes, typhoons, flooding and drought have haunted the country for years, and regularly swept away the foundations on which the lives of hundreds of thousands of families were built.
Internal and external political issues have also left their mark on the country, leading to chronic instability. Anti-Terror operations along the Afghan border have led to years of population displacement and Pakistan is now home to over 2.5 million displaced people, mostly from crisis-ridden Afghanistan.
