No. Extensive deforestation and the building of dams for irrigation and power generation across tributaries of the Indus river is the cause. Years of political unrest have also left their mark, + flood waters transport land mines, posing an extra danger to relief missions.
In Pakistan, climate change is not a threat- it’s a lived reality. 33 million affected by the devastating floods. Over 1000 people killed and 200k+ homes destroyed. Pakistan produces less than 1% of global carbon emissions but it’s disproportionately affected by global warming. pic.twitter.com/fXsOgFkbup
