ISLAMABAD: Minister for Climate Change Sherry Rehman will raise the climate change issue at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) 2022, where nearly 2,500 leaders from politics, business, civil society and media will participate.
A press release issued on Sunday by the ministry said this year’s theme ‘History at a turning point’ would deal with ongoing challenges faced by the world including global pandemic, war in Ukraine, geo-economic shocks and climate change.
Climate change was an important agenda on the pages and was also extremely pertinent to the prevailing heatwaves and GLOF incidents in the country. Since Pakistan was among the 10 most affected countries from climate change, Ms Rehman would be addressing panels and keynotes on energy transitions, cyclical economy, women and vulnerability indices as well as a high-level forum on democracy and its global future, other than bilateral meetings on the sidelines with multilateral agencies and country delegations.
