Islamabad - The Capital Development Authority (CDA) on Monday started a five days training programme titled “Global Warming and Environmental Hazards” here at CDA Training Academy, Pak-China Friendship Centre.

Around 100 participants from CDA Environment Wing and students of environmental sciences from Iqra University, Comsat University and Preston University also joined the training course.

The World’s climate is changing and will continue to change in the coming century at a rate projected to be unprecedented in recent human history. The risks associated with climate change may exacerbate ongoing social and economic challenges, particularly for those parts of societies dependent on resources that are sensitive to changes in climate. Risks are apparent in agriculture, fisheries and many other components that constitute the livelihood of rural populations in developing countries.

This course is especially designed to acquaint with the recent climate changing and their after-effects in a better way.

Naseer Ghalani, chief climate change ministry of planning and development, was the chief guest on the first day of the course. In his speech, he stressed that such type of courses are very essential for the development and enhancement by sharing knowledge. He highly appreciated the activities of CDA Training Academy and offered full cooperation to enhance the knowledge to officers.
