Wider role suggested to cope with climate change

STAFF REPORT ISB: Weather patterns in Pakistan are changing rapidly due to climate change, causing negative impacts on glaciers, river flows, underground water recharge systems, agriculture and overall biodiversity.

“Efforts are being made at various levels to cope with the negative impacts,” said Minister for Climate Change Mushahid Ullah while addressing a conference in Islamabad.

He said depleting river flows, falling underground water level, shifting rainfall patterns, expanding summer months and melting glaciers are all terrible indicators of how fast the climate of the country is changing.

“We need to take corrective measures and work hard in collaboration with relevant organizations for hammering out mitigation and adaptation plans to tackle the negative impacts of the climate change on different sectors of economy,” he maintained.
