Pakistan is a
flood prone country on the globe. Over the last 37 years quantitatively
Pakistan has faced 17 floods of various magnitudes and among these 50
percent has been classified as major floods. After the mega flood of
1929, another ‘super flood’ struck the lands of Pakistan during 2010.
The present study is an attempt to explore the shocking impact of floods
and the involvement of man for the serious devastation due to floods. It
is a historically proven fact that not only in Pakistan at different
intervals of time man has caused flooding at different intensities by
indulging in various malpractices. The study also tries to identify
where man is consciously involved and where unconsciously -lack of
planning, mismanagement and lack of resources- causing floods. The study
also tries to suggest how we can protect Pakistan from such hazards in
