Dr. Qamar appointed by UN to manage disasters


STAFF REPORT KHI: One of the authors of Pakistans first National Climate Change Policy, Dr Qamaruz Zaman Chaudhry, has been appointed by the United Nations World Meteorological Organisation as its special envoy on disaster risk reduction and climate services for Asia.

Dr Chaudhry is a former Pakistan meteorological department director-general. He has recently represented the organisation in the sixth Asian Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction, recently held in Bangkok.

His appointment came amid preparations for the post-2015 Hyogo Framework for Action – a global platform for disaster risk reduction that will succeed the 10-year Hyogo Framework for Action, adopted in 2005.

“In 2015, we see the adoption of the SDG as a replacement to the millennium development goals, and a new global treaty on climate change,” said Dr Chaudhry.
