Le face à face entre Inde et Pakistan, les frères ennemis de la région Asie-Pacifique, a longtemps été considéré comme l'un des foyers de tension les plus dangereux du monde. Ces deux Etats, créés au moment de la décolonisation britannique en 1947, se sont affrontés plusieurs fois depuis. Nous allons nous intéresser au Pakistan, plus petit que son voisin indien, qui revendique depuis toujours le Cachemire dont la population est majoritairement musulmane. Sa situation géographique le rend aussi très attentif aux intérêts de ses autres voisins, la Chine et l'Afghanistan. Décryptage avec Gilles Boquérat, spécialiste de l'Asie du Sud contemporaine, chercheur associé à la Fondation pour la Recherche Stratégique de Paris, ancien chercheur au Centre de sciences humaines de New Delhi et ancien résident à l'Institute of Strategic Studies d'Islamabad. Il est interviewé par Etienne Duval. Photo: Karachi (Pakistan), le mercredi 27 février 2019.

Kate Adie presents stories from Ukraine, the West Bank, Pakistan, the US and the Faroe Islands. Jeremy Bowen was in Kherson in Ukraine shortly after the Russians retreated, but he found that occupation and liberation can lead to suspicion and division. There is unease among Palestinians living in the hamlets of Masafer Yatta in the occupied West Bank as the new Israeli government takes shape. Yolande Knell spoke to villagers there, who found out earlier this year about the Israeli Supreme Court decision to recognise a military training zone around their homes. Samira Hussain attends one of the rallies of former PM Imran Khan on his March to Islamabad and meets him again after an assassination attempt a fortnight later - wounded but determined to continue his political fight. In New York, there's a population explosion - of rats. The mayor has a plan to tackle the problem but requiring residents to put their refuse out after 8pm each night. But there's more to the expanding rat population than meets the eye, finds Laura Trevelyan. And in the Faroe Islands, Tim Ecott is in amidst a sheep mustering where he learns about the local meat-eating tradition, and the desire to be self-sustainable amid the threat of European recession, inflation and the energy crisis.

Le Pakistan n'est responsable que de moins de 1 % des émissions mondiales de gaz à effet de serre, mais il figure parmi les pays les plus touchés par les événements météorologiques extrêmes dus au dérèglement climatique. Après des épisodes de canicule en mai dernier, ce sont des pluies diluviennes qui se sont abattues sur le pays lors d'une mousson exceptionnelle l'été dernier.  En quelques semaines, un tiers du Pakistan s'est retrouvé sous les eaux, deux millions d'habitations ont été détruites, 1 700 personnes ont été tuées, 33 millions de personnes ont été affectées, soit un habitant sur sept. Autre conséquence : le taux de pauvreté pourrait quasiment doubler. Le Pakistan n'est pas étranger aux catastrophes climatiques. En 2010, le pays avait déjà dû faire face à des inondations monstres. Les autorités pakistanaises, accusées de ne pas avoir été prévoyantes, reconnaissent être dépassées par l'ampleur des catastrophes climatiques qui s'abattent sur le pays plongé dans une grave crise économique. Islamabad demande des comptes aux pays riches. Le sujet des « pertes et dommages » sera justement au centre des discussions lors de la COP27 qui se tient jusqu'au 18 novembre 2022 à Charm-el-Cheikh, en Égypte.
