 Exploring And Addressing the Environmental Issues Focusing Pakistan

The Pakistan Environment and Climate Change Outlook

The Pakistan Environment and Climate Change Outlook examines the nation’s environmental circumstances, the impacts of climate change, and the state of Pakistan’s national response to the evolving events. Its objective is to give a general assessment of the state of the environment and newly emerging sustainable practices.

Deteriorating Air and Pollution Issues

Deteriorating urban air quality and global climate change are the main problems affecting Pakistan’s atmospheric ecosystem. Growing industrialization, increased quantity and variety of industries, increased chemical use, rapidly rising motorized traffic, and increased energy consumption have all contributed to deteriorating urban air quality. 

The leading causes of air pollution, as determined by air quality monitoring data, are particulate matter (PM). In every city surveyed, PM concentrations were significantly higher than WHO recommendations.

Agricultural Risks and Impact on Climate

The environmental effects of actions outside Pakistan’s borders, which have led to phenomena like climate change, also affect Pakistan. The country will suffer significant consequences from climate change. These consequences will be detrimental to both natural resources and the livelihoods they support and are likely to be multifaceted, spanning sectors and ecosystems. 

Security in food, water, and energy is particularly precarious. Due to its warm climate, the preponderance of arid and semi-arid land, and the reliance of its rivers on glaciers that are reportedly retreating because of global warming, Pakistan has become more vulnerable to climate change. The nation is highly climate-sensitive due to its reliance on agriculture for economic growth.

To Summarize

Although the direct and indirect economic losses are incalculable, the environmental sector’s central role has yet to be fully acknowledged in the financial or social calculus. Future costs will be extremely high if the issue is not resolved. Therefore, it is necessary to support strengthening the nation’s ability to achieve environmentally sustainable economic development to meet the needs of both the present and future generations.
