May 18, 2022

Minister for Climate Change Sherry Rehman has urged the developed countries to take collective measures to combat the effects of climate change in Pakistan and other countries.

Addressing a youth dialogue on the right to a clean and healthy environment in Islamabad, she said the people of Pakistan are struggling with extreme temperatures in the South, touching 50 degrees Celsius for the last three years.

The Minister said Pakistan is under-resourced both in terms of expertise and climate funds to create a nationwide, coherent and sustained response to a crisis that has been brewing for years.

Commenting on reduction in emissions, she said Pakistan produces less than one percent of the global emissions.
