    Aid agency Oxfam has said that a year after the worst floods in Pakistan's history, the country is still not sufficiently prepared to cope with flooding and other natural disasters.

    More than 1,750 people are thought to have been killed and 20 million people affected by last year's floods.

    An Oxfam report expresses concern about the pace of reconstruction.

    It says more than 8,000 families are still without permanent shelter as another monsoon season approaches.

    The aid agency also says many people who missed the chance to plant or harvest crops are struggling to sustain themselves with little work available and rising food prices.

    Oxfam acknowledges that the floods would have challenged any government and that as a result of the aid operations thousands of lives were saved.

    With much of the country still not covered by early warning systems and many flood defences destroyed in last year's disaster not yet properly repaired, Pakistan is not sufficiently prepared to cope as it now faces another monsoon season, the aid agency says.
