Millions of people of Sindh province migrate due to Climate Change

Extreme weather patterns, shrinking agriculture, and lingering dry spells forced millions to migrate. Floods that inundated one-fifth of the nation from 2010 to 2022 caused more than 3 million people to be displaced, which led to a large-scale migration from rural Pakistan to urban areas. According to Muhammad Saleem, spokesman for the Ministry of Climate Change, of that number, about 70% did not return to their hometowns and instead permanently relocated to large cities in order to make a living. This was due to the loss of their homes and farmlands. Climate change disasters cost Pakistan more than $4 billion every year. Several Indus river delta islands, primarily in the Thatta, Badin, and Sajawal districts of southern Sindh province, have been inundated in recent decades due to a mix of sea erosion and encroachment, forcing local residents to relocate to other districts or the port metropolis of Karachi.


Climate change doesn’t depend on race, caste, gender, nationality, or anything else. This can cause chaos without informing you and ruin people’s lives within the milliseconds. Due to heavy rains, floods, and unexpected impacts of climate change, people have to leave their towns. The disastrous summer of 2021 was enough to give evidence that this will impact your global political, economic, and social institutions. global community to witness the consequences of climate inaction, and it was but a portent of what humanity can face in the coming decades if immediate and dramatic steps are not taken to cut carbon emissions and restore ecosystems. Each year, natural disasters force an average of 21.5 million people from their homes around the world, according to the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees. From national to international, the pangs of climate change are vulnerable. There is no way back after hitting climate change and changing the way of life.

Most climate migrants move within the borders of their homelands, usually from rural areas to cities, after losing their home or livelihood because of drought, rising seas, or another weather calamity. Because cities are also facing their own climate-related problems, including soaring temperatures and water scarcity, people are increasingly being forced to flee across international borders to seek refuge. In this scenario, Karachi suffers the most, as it has become one of the most populous cities in the world. An unknown number of people migrate here, and this overpopulation deteriorates the quality of lives and welcomes many diseases that can turn into pandemics. Weather problems are making poverty, crime, and political unrest worse while also escalating tensions over depleting resources. Pakistan is not prepared for any form of this horrible crisis. Because of this, the wealthy will continue to receive all the resources in our health care system, leaving the migrants at the mercy of God. The wait is over. All we need is an action plan to resist the impact of climate change because this will wipe out hopes, happiness, and lives.
