All this threatens food security. This worst part is that these impact are only getting worse. Pakistan is already on the list of the 10 most affected nations by climate change in spite of its negligible contribution to greenhouse gas emissions.the recent Long- term Global Climate Risk Index 2020 rated pakistan as the fifth most affected county due to adverse impact of climate change.

According to the report, pakistan lost 9,989 lives, suffered economic losses worth $3.8 billion and witnessed 152 extreme weather events from 1999 to 2018, and,base on this data, the report concluded that pakistan's vulnerability to climate change is increasing.

These winter, pakistan received less rainfall compared to the corresponding months of the last year. currently, pakistan is also facing sever water shortage that is going to be worse in the coming years.

It would be a mistake to expect foreign donor to come to our rescue unless we as, a nation, appear to be taking the crisis seriously and are ready to self correct what we can. Pakistan needs a multi-tiered approach with short-term, medium-term and long term steps to tackle the mounting climate change problems.

The northern areas of pakistan have suffered sever due to deforestation due to lack of access to natural gas, electricity and job opportunities.the government, under the umbrella of the Billion Tree Tsunami project should undertake urgent reforestation project on mountain slopes and engage local communities in the front. According to statistical data, fossil fuels constitute 64 percent of total energy production in pakistan and less than 35pc comes from renewable energy. If the government plans to increase the share of renewable to 60pc 2030, it needs to ramp up the efforts to materialise the plan.
