Pak’s commitment to address Climate change receives global recognition: FO
Pertaining to the country’s commitment for addressing Climate Change under leadership of Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan, Foreign Office (FO) has said that it is well-acknowledged across the globe.
In a statement on Saturday, Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Choudhari said the Government’s landmark initiatives like the Billion Tree Tsunami have won international acclaim, including from the World Economic Forum.
He said that Pakistan is also meaningfully contributing to shape the global Climate Change discourse, inter alia, as the Vice President of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
He said that Pakistan also Co-chaired the multibillion-dollar Green Climate Fund, established to support climate actions in developing countries, last year.
The Leaders Summit on Climate Change hosted by President Biden reconvenes the U.S.-led Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate, which brings together leaders from countries responsible for approximately 80 percent of global emissions and GDP.
Moreover, the official said that despite the country holding a high rank in Climate Change, it is one of the lowest emitters of lethal global emissions.
