Adrian Goldberg discusses the tragedy of Pakistan’s floods which have killed more than 1100 people and left a third of the country under water.

Un Sec General Antonio Guterres described it as a “monsoon on steroids” as he launched a campaign to raise 160million US dollars to provide help for the those affected.

We hear from Asad Rehman, co-founder of the Climate Justice Coalition who has spent years raising the issue of Pakistan's vulnerability to climate change, and Heidi Chow, director of the charity Debt Justice.
