Two days ago, the president of the World Bank, Robert Zoellick, said that the floods may have destroyed crops worth around $1bn. About a quarter of Pakistan's economy is derived from agriculture...two million people driven from their homes, and the lives of 20 million – fully 12 per cent of the entire population – disrupted across the country.
