Natural Disasters in Pakistan, their Effects and Control.


answers: 1
Pakistan is facing natural disasters since its inception.The different kinds of disasters like; floods,earthquakes and droughts.The flood in 1972,was a most destructive and catastrophic that made homeless more than five millions people.Then in 2010,the severity of this natural calamity was more than in the past.One fourth part of Pakistan was effected by this flood and more than ten million people remained homeless.The south part of the country,which is agriculture based and has poor people,faced its worst history.
In 2005,earthquake in northern areas hit the vast population,almost a million people died and five million lost their homes,properties and business.These disasters effects every tier of life as economic,social,financial and agricultural.Pakistan's economy that was already in worst conditions,has become poorer than the past.The growth of Pakistan's economy in 2006-2007 was almost 6% annually,but now it is only on 3%. The flood of 2010 has severally smashed the agriculture sector which is back bone of Pakistan.More than 60% population of the country depends upon agriculture sector.The exports like textile goods,wheat and fruits etc of the country is also directly attached with this sector.So that industrial sector too has been gone one step back instead of ahead.There is less aid from international community because of world's financial crisis,so it makes harder for Pakistan to meet its future developmental targets.Now Pakistan has to cut its developmental budget and has to reconstruct the destructive areas.
therefore,the need of the hour is that government should take steps to control these calamities.It should build dams and embankments to save populated areas and early warning system and shifting of people to a save place.These would be helpful,

A little helps...
The geographical positioning of Pakistan threatens its own continuation, and by revealing its exposer to natural occurring disasters in the past we may better understand events still to come. History may very well repeat its self, lets take example of a few past natural catastrophes...
