In a bid to meet the towering needs, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres would host an international conference in Geneva.

The one-day event would gather high-level representatives from dozens of countries, including several heads of state and government.

While not strictly a pledging conference, UN and Pakistani representatives had said that it aimed to mobilise support as the country dealt rebuilds after the massive floods that left more than 1,700 people dead and affected over 30 million others.

“The needs are around $16.3 billion,” Knut Ostby, the UN Development Programme’s representative in Pakistan, had told reporters.

Speaking by video from Islamabad, Syed Haider Shah, who heads the UN division in Pakistan’s foreign ministry, had said his country hoped to cover half that amount through its own “domestic resources”.
