Everyone is aware of the effects of climate change in Pakistan and the devastating floods it has created which have left millions homeless. Although Pakistan is one of the least contributing countries to global pollution, the effects of climate change faced by Pakistan are the highest. According to the 2020 hypothesis of global pollution production, only 0.7 percent of the total world’s CO2 is emitted by Pakistan, and CO2 is a great pollution factor.
Despite being one of the least climate-polluting countries, Pakistan needs to take further actions for controlling the GHG emissions and overall pollution factors by 50 percent by 2030. The reason for that need is that we are a part of 196 countries who have signed the legally binding Paris Agreement in 2015, an international treaty on climate change that established the goal of limiting global temperatures below 2 degrees Celsius, and preferably 1.5 degrees Celsius. The same agreement also requires signatories to submit their NDCs every five years to show their commitment to achieving this goal.
GHG: GHG stands for Greenhouse Gases. These are a group of gases in our atmosphere that trap heat from the sun, preventing it from escaping into space. Common GHGs are carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide.
This aim to reduce GHG emissions by 50 percent by 2030 can be achieved by shifting to 60pc renewable energy and 30pc electric vehicles, banning imported coal, and reducing carbon through natural resource restoration initiatives...
