    Pakistan: Preparing for disaster in south Punjab



    Wading into floodwaters spreading 3km from the banks of the Indus river, a man checks fishing traps near a submerged clump of trees. Last year's floods swept away whole villages in south Punjab, leaving affected communities struggling to prepare for the monsoon season. Many flood defences destroyed then remain in disrepair



    Crowded into Lashkar Pur's community shelter, women and children watch as Muhammad, a farmer, demonstrates his newly acquired resuscitation skills



    Families camping out in makeshift shelters on Layyah's mud-built flood protection barrier have again found themselves surrounded by floodwaters
