Climate change

Published December 10, 2022

PAKISTAN has been badly affected by climate change, leading to global warming, an unprecedented rise in temperature, and floods termed biblical. The contributing factors to climate change in Pakistan include deforestation, the state’s inability to control pollution, and non-compliance with the standard commercial waste disposal process.

Pakistan needs to contribute its share to the global fight against the adverse effects of climate change by initiating mitigating steps to reverse the process and at least stop the worsening of the damaging effects of climate change.

This calls for implementing a robust policy to save Pakistan from the effects of climate change. Natural disasters, like floods, will likely increase if we do not take action on climate change. And the time to do that is now. Any delay will be harmful.
