The Committee on Development will debate with the European Commission the humanitarian situation in Pakistan and the EU response to the floods on 26 September. Torrential rains during the recent monsoon season have led to the worst floods in Pakistan’s history, with approximately one-third of Pakistan covered by water. 1,500 people have been killed and 13,000 injured; nearly 2 million houses have been destroyed or damaged, and around 7.6 million people were temporarily displaced.
