ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said that international community, particularly developed world should not leave developing countries like Pakistan at mercy of climate change.

"If it is us today, it can be somebody else tomorrow. Threat of climate change is real, potent and staring us in face," he said in a tweet after he met members of international media to brief about flood ravages in Pakistan. He said that devastation is evidence of seriousness of threat posed by climate change. Despite having less than one percent share in carbon emission, Pakistan was ranked 8th in terms of exposure to climate hazards, Shehbaz said.

Climate Change Minister Senator Sherry Rehman earlier warned that number of flood-hit people in country might rise from 33 million as devastating floods continued. "Humanitarian action is right now being led by government and supported by United Nations and other humanitarian agencies.
