out of eight attacks by african-americans community leaders say it's likely to be the result of high unemployment and tough competition for jobs. the united nations has asked governments to provide dozens of helicopters to get lifesaving supplies to pakistan some eight hundred thousand people remain trapped after the country's worst ever floods with more than seventeen million affected to get an inside look at the situation and find out what needs to be done we spoke to the un's deputy envoy to pakistan his interviews coming right out. some see it is the catastrophic of the century and the un has devoted all its resources its called upon the international community to help. in this message of this trophy disaster. as a u.n. special envoy in pakistan. and pakistan how do you assess the you rule
at this time i believe the united nations has been a very important partner to pakistan for the pakistani people for decades we have been working in this country and some of the worst crisis. which affected the people of pakistan the influx of afghan refugees thirty years ago the different natural disasters this country is experiencing unfortunately on this very frequent basis so we are with pakistan have to do with pakistan really with pakistan and as such the united nations of course in its role of coordinating not only itself. but also the international community the various aid organizations which are coming in to help if we are here to certainly streamline and help the government of pakistan streamline the assistance
which is now gradually unfortunately coming to this country the united nations. secretary general mr ban ki moon has. borne the international community to help pakistan some media reports say is that this call was not smith's properly and how do you respond to that but i believe it took all of us a little while to understand that this was one of the biggest if not the biggest natural disaster. we have seen in living memory. took us a while to understand when we did realize that it was not only the flash floods which hit the north in the very beginning but as the secretary general after his visit during his visit said slow rolling moving tsunami affecting the entire country. i think we are waking up the international community
is waking up has woken up and is now contributing it is to all of us pakistan of course the first the pakistani people the well known pakistani hospitality which has also worked so well when all the people came from swat in two thousand and nine to host the brothers and the sisters. that now is coming to fruit we have seen considerable contributions coming in to pakistan to the united nations but also to the many aid organizations who are now rushing to to help this country. however. we are still in the beginning. there are still hundreds of thousands of people displaced every newly displaced. every day every week more and more people are. impacted in the same time having
people returning all that these people also need assistance they are now rebuilding their houses they have to rebuild their livelihood or start again maybe cleaning and clearing out their fields they need to be helped so the needs will be and we should not only in fact from a use this get stuck with the initial amounts which have been mentioned the appeal of the united nations the appeals done by other organisations by the government itself it is just the beginning we are still assessing and we cannot even do the full assessment because it's still happening how much will be really needed so we have seen almost a billion dollars now coming to pakistan in kind in donations but also in cash let me put this question is maybe it's a political side a bit but this is what i have touched where where when i visited the area. in
the senate in the in the south everybody is complaining of the. nor the decrease of the shortage of the aids that reach into these areas they are complaining they are very angry against the government let me ask you what type of cord the nation is between the you and the government of pakistan in order to put a mechanism to make an ism to distribute this assistance and make sure that this system reaches reach to these affected well. first of all i think i'm not saying the people are rights of course the people are frustrated they lost everything and they see that only a portion of the needs is actually covered. again i believe that in. the shower. as we have been operational there now for four years and even though our warehouses were all affected. the world food program lost
thousands of tons of food other organizations lost a lot of other items we were able to response in fact that area has been better covered than others now it is clear that only earth fraction of the people has been covered satisfactory the problems of access are just unbelievable unbelievable if you believe that i mean if you imagine that eight hundred thousand people is not a million i simply cut off. anywhere in the world that would be an unsurmountable challenge for any government for any other militant action this is one of the massive as we have agreed destructions that ever we face in the world or in its in the century. the flanders come from the north west and indeed in saying that there is. little whining by the united nations that the diseases and
the a chronic disease would spread in the areas which affected what is the how the un will deal to corteen and contain these diseases in the within the fifty's well again the united nations has been present and working with the health authorities in the country again for decades on the over the question of polio etc so there is a capacity on the ground and again intertwined with. the government health structures. sort of deserving and the need there may be and may have been even before but still there is a capacity to respond. there has been a very high level of consultation involving him and by the prime minister himself to address this issue because it is all from so again because of the rather poor state of health of many of the people let's not forget that before the floods
occurred the food insecurity was enormous in this country a lot of people did not have enough food on their plates every day poverty is a big issue here so you have very weak people. and these are in many cases in most cases the ones of most affected the poorest of the poor they're the ones who have been cultivating in the river beds or working in the river beds for some of the of the owners so there are people in a very very poor nutritional status these are people who already where you will find a lot of these diseases present it is not new. so if you see reports on. all of these these are not really killing you but you would have scabies escape or something what has been there all the time but of course the combination of displaced exposure to the weather no shelter. no clean water.
etc etc you bring this all together you have the already existing diseases and it becomes dangerous however the there has been is an ongoing response the deployment of the necessary medical kits to the various still existing structures medical teams volunteers being deployed so we hope but again there is no guarantee of course we hope to be able to contain it all together. but there is certainly major risk and again that's why we have a meeting on the highest level bringing all the actors together to to really take work on an action plan take action work on the action and move forward my last questions and maybe one of the most interesting points that is building dams. the
government of pakistan has always been in controversy over certain dams especially dams and calabash dams and several times in the northwest and in the south it's a new long term plans did you. assess how you would convince the governments to build such dams that to avoid such a catastrophe in the futures are not up to us to convince the government it is in fact up to the government to in fact review together with its partners who are coming forward also with the with the financing of these projects. and some of the private consorts of course the big biological friends they do have of the shapers however. in this context we're looking forward to a comprehensive plan of. build back better and avoid in fact future disasters so the extent possible of this extent.
and dams are the management of water in the context of how it flows and where it is retained and now it refilled the water table and so on that is obviously one of the big issues in in fact the now the century of climate change and global warming where this needs to be addressed i mean some have predicted more and more of these crises. and they go and also we should recall that statistically say in every year pakistan is affected by floods and so it is an issue of course which needs to be addressed in the long run again let's take together the opportunity let's see what is the best technical solution to it and it's not up to me to decide which is the good one of the bad one is up to the to the experts to work together and i think again it's an opportunity for this partnership. we how. do you do
friends of democratic pakistan process which in fact has been misunderstood for long as a pledging and donor events which is this not and it is in fact exactly to address. jointly the requirements for change for reform addressing policy view have come up with an energy plan together under the leadership of the development bank be able to looking forward now to the implementation of the energy plan which we have by the way hydro energy is one of the major elements and in the same way let's combine this with with looking into how water and the floods will be managed here and not to have the water as an enemy but as a friend thank you very much and keep. me
