The Pakistan government and the United Nations on Tuesday together made a quick appeal for $160 million to assist the country in coping with the devastating floods.

According to local media reports, Pakistan and the UN would probably release a revision of the emergency request for more funding early next month to deal with the disastrous floods.

Since June 14, the floods brought on by climate change have killed 1,576 people, uprooted 33 million people, destroyed 30 billion dollars worth of property, and destroyed houses, crops, bridges, roads, and livestock.
