The YAD-Pakistan’s response towards Goal: 13: Climate Action
Climate change is a real and undeniable threat to our entire civilization. The effects are already visible and will be catastrophic unless we act now. Climate change is now affecting Pakistan. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities dearly today and even more tomorrow. Weather patterns are changing, sea levels are rising, floods and droughts are coming, weather events are becoming more extreme and greenhouse gas emissions are now at their highest levels in history. The poorest and most vulnerable people are being affected the most. YAD-Pakistan is in struggle for affordable, scalable solutions to enable Pakistani communities to leapfrog to cleaner, more resilient economies. The pace of change is quickening as more people are turning to renewable energy and a range of other measures that will reduce emissions and increase adaptation efforts. Climate change, however, is a global challenge that does not respect national borders. It is an issue that requires solutions that need to be coordinated at the international level to help developing countries move toward a low-carbon economy. To strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change, countries adopted the Paris Agreement at the COP21 in Paris.
  • Climate Education within schools, communities, collages, universities, academies and open gathering to mitigate climate change through utilizing their full potential and adopting local traditional methodologies as well scientific aspects
  • Return water to the earth to restore the climate to ensure the resilient communities in Pakistan
  • To develop and activate long-term conditions that lead to socially practicable and economically effective functioning of a complex and integrated system of bio diversity, forest, agriculture, echo system and environmental protection in Pakistan
  • To ensure the prevention of floods, drought and climate change across various ecosystems, water basins, sub basins, rivers & canals in Pakistan
  • Formulation & development of Pakistan National Action Plan (PNAP) for the restoration of natural water cycles & climate a legal legislative documents, products, strategy & road map for prevention of floods, drought and climate change in Pakistan
  • Formulation climate a legal legislative documents, products, strategy & road map for prevention of floods, drought and climate change in Pakistan and can be tackled in a three step approach based on the following sequence: (i) first, capturing rainwater in the eco-system where it falls – retaining (ii) second, accumulation of rainwater in the eco-system storing (iii) last, releasing the excess rainwater, which the ecosystem is not capable of absorbing draining.
  • Activation of PNAP the renewal of small water cycles will established of a new generation of water-related legislation across Pakistan will be the result of technical and legal analysis, and documentation primarily focused on the following areas
  • Through education, innovation and adherence to climate commitments.
  • Makes the necessary changes to protect the planet, provide huge opportunities to modernize infrastructure, create new jobs and promote greater prosperity across Pakistan.
  • Strengthen resilience and adaptive capacity to climate-related hazards and natural disasters in Pakistan
  • Integrate climate change measures into national and sub national policies, strategies and planning with a mechanism of enforcing these policies, laws & action plan in Pakistan
  • Improve education, awareness-raising and human and institutional capacity on climate change mitigation, adaptation, impact reduction and early warning systems in Pakistan
  • Implement the commitment undertaken by Pakistan to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, COP, mobilizing in the context of meaningful mitigation actions, accountability, open data, citizen’s generated data and transparency in Pakistan
  • Promote mechanisms for raising capacity for effective climate change-related planning and management, including focusing on women, minorities, mountain peoples, indigenous people, people with disabilities, youth and local and marginalized communities in Pakistan
  • Alternative energy uses by making, testing and using solar cookers, young people to be actively involved in their communities. Groups of students will be guided to do work focusing on issues like environment; making a growing network of youth clubs, classes and community groups who share an interest in studying and protecting the environment. These groups are youth-directed. They coordinate local hikes, explorations of the environment, and investigations of environmental topics and share these explorations through online forums and at local and international conferences and workshops.
