6:33 am
in the big apple mexican immigrants claim being targeted in the racially motivated tax plan african-american community leaders say it's likely to be the result of high unemployment because. well the united nations has asked the government 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 now to get an inside look at the situation and to find out what needs to be done we spoke to the un's deputy envoy to pakistan and his interview is coming up next. some see it is the catastrophic of the century and the un has devoted all its resources its calling upon the international community to help pakistan in this a massive get this traffic disaster. as
6:34 am
a un special envoy in. pakistan how do you assess the you role 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 all the different natural disasters this country is experiencing unfortunately on a very frequent basis so we are with pakistan have to deal with pakistan will be with bikers and. united nations of course in its rule of coordinating not only itself. but also the international community
6:35 am
the various aid organizations which are coming in to help if we are here to certainly streamline and help the government of pakistan assistance which is now gradually unfortunately coming to this country the united nations. secretary general mr banking more than has already won the international community to help pakistan some media reports say is that this call was not smith properly and how do you respond to that but i believe it took all of us a little while to under. stand 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
6:36 am
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 brothers and the sisters. that now is coming to you 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
6:37 am
day every week more and more people. impacted in the same time having people returning all of it these people also need assistance they are now rebuilding their houses they have to rebuild their livelihoods start again maybe cleaning and clearing out their fields they need to be helped so the needs will be i mean should not only in fact from a used to get stuck with the initial amounts which have been mentioned the appeal of the united nations the appeals done by others are going to. versions by the government itself it is just the beginning we're 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 donations but also in cash let me put this question is maybe it's a political side
6:38 am
a bit but this is what i have touched where where when i visited the area. in this in the in the south everybody is complaining of the. north a 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 u.s. and the government of pakistan in order to put a mic and it certainly can ism to distribute this assistance and make sure that this is a system reaches reach to these affected well. first of all i think i'm not saying the people are right of course the people are frustrated they lost everything and they see only a portion of the needs is actually covered. again i believe in. the shower. as we have been operational there now for four years
6:39 am
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 respond to in fact liberia has been better covered than others now it is clear that only a fraction of the people has been covered satisfactorily the problems of access are just unbelievable unbelievable if you believe that i mean if you imagine that hundred thousand people if not a million i simply cut off. anywhere in the world that would be an unsurmountable challenge for any government for any action this is one of the massive as we have agreed destructions that ever faced in the world or its in the century. know the flanders come from the north west and in the same then
6:40 am
there is. a warning by the united nations that the disease is. a chronic disease would spread in the areas was affected what is the how the un will deal to. contain these diseases in these within their 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 paul your 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 consultation involving him and by the prime minister himself to address this issue because it is of. again because of the rather poor state of
6:41 am
health of many of the people let's not forget that before the floods because. 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 in most cases the ones of most affected are the poorest of the poor they are the ones who have been cultivating in the riverbeds or working in the river beds for some. 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 movies these are not really killing you but you would have scabies escape
6:42 am
this is something that has been there all the time. but of course the combination of this place the exposure to the weather. 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 ongoing response the deployment of the necessary medical kits to the various 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
6:43 am
question is i mean one of the most interesting points that is building dams. the government of pakistan has always been in controversy over certain dams special dams and several times in the northwest and indeed in the cells in your 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. in fact up to the government to. review together with its partners who are coming forward also with the financing of these projects. and some of the private. consults of course the big a bilateral friends who have. shaped us however. in this context we're looking forward to
6:44 am
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 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 again also we should recall that statistically seen 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 trinity let's see what is the best technical solution to it and it's not up to me to decide which
6:45 am
is the good one of the bad ones. to the to the experts to work together and i think again it's an opportunity for this partnership. we have. the friends of democratic pakistan process which in fact has been misunderstood for long as a pledging and donor event this is not and it is in fact exactly to address. jointly the requirements for change for reform addressing policy we have come up with an energy plan together. under the leadership of the development bank. 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 and not to have the water as an enemy but as
6:46 am
a friend thank you very much if you. take a swing state this is not a provocation but a warning. and we should just step you sure to support the tree because they have no idea about the hardships that we face. they wanted this is. all going to need to. bring the army to life so the use of them is the most precious thing in the world. uses of self-sacrifice and heroism with those who understand it fully but you have to live a. real life stories from world war two. victory nineteen forty five dot com.
