Pakistan to reduce 50 percent carbon emissions by 2030.

Malik Amin Aslam, the Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Climate Change, said that Pakistan’s emissions have decreased by 9%.

“As a signatory to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change’s Paris Agreement, the government has done its share to assist global efforts to address climate change.” At a news briefing here, the PM’s assistant stated, “We are ecstatic to submit an updated Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) that is inclusive and shows national consensus on speeding the transition to net-zero and a climate-resilient economy.”

According to him, the present submission demonstrated progress in climate action, ranging from programmes and policies on environment solutions to innovation interventions.

“Pakistan has created comprehensive natural capital restoration projects, such as the Ten Billion Tree Tsunami Programme (TBTTP), Protected Areas Initiative (PAI), and others, in recognition of the significance of nature in climate adaptation and mitigation. These programmes have also improved livelihood prospects for the most vulnerable, such as women and youth,” he told the press.
