Climate Change and Pakistan’s Policy Response: Challenges and Impacts
Author: Aneela Waheed

Climate Change is expected to have an adverse impact on Pakistan. This is ironical for a country, which ranks 135th in the world in terms of global greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions per capita, but ranks 5th in terms of vulnerability to Climate Change. this poses a major threat to all dimensions of sustainable development and has widespread impacts across various sectors and ecosystems such as food, water and energy; forests and biodiversity; coastal and marine environment; as well as on the occurrence and intensity of climate related hazards such as floods and drought. It also carries potential for internal and external conflicts. The study evaluates the present and potential future impacts of Climate Change in Pakistan, and reviews National Policies, identified major determinants of Climate Change in Pakistan, and then analyzed efforts of Parliament in making legislation against Climate Change. The study also evaluates policy objectives of National Climate Change Policy in terms of Agendas and Recommendations in the meetings of Parliamentary Standing Committee on Climate Change under PTI-led government.
