Taskforce on Climate Change


Introduction:

Keeping in view the threats of climate change to the socioeconomics of Pakistan, a Taskforce on climate change was established  by Planning commission of Pakistan in 2008 with a view to take stock of country’s situation in relation to climate change; to contribute to the formulation of a climate change policy that would assist the government in achieving sustained economic growth by appropriately addressing climate change threats so as to ensure water security, food security and energy security of the country; and to recommend policy measures for promoting large scale Adaptation and Mitigation efforts, raising awareness of various stakeholders; and enhancing the capacities of relevant national institutions.
