Holistic approach needed to tackle climate change: PM

Holistic approach needed to tackle climate change: PM
March 31, 2021

ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has said a holistic approach is needed to tackle climate change.

In a tweet on Wednesday sharing his article published in 'The Times', he said financial commitments are also required to deal with this issue.

In his article, the prime minister has highlighted the risks faced by Pakistan due to climate change.

"Monsoon season in Pakistan is time of hope and fear. Hope because the rains irrigate our farmlands and refresh our cities after the intense summer heat. Fear that the rains will overwhelm us, bursting river banks and unleashing urban flash floods."

"Last summer Pakistan experienced the heaviest rains in a century, with an unprecedented cloudburst leaving much of the sprawling metropolis of Karachi inundated, rendering thousands homeless and over a hundred dead. Pakistan is used to coping with heavy monsoon rains, but 2020 was unexpectedly intense, and scientists tell us this will become increasingly common as our planet warms."
