Title

  • Pakistan's Legal Framework to Manage the Risks of Extreme Climate Events and Disasters

Summary

  • This past summer, nearly one-third of Pakistan was flooded by extreme monsoon rains and melting glaciers that began in mid-June and have continued into September, where as of now it is being reported that nearly 1,400 people have died, 13,000 injured, and more than a million people have been rendered homeless. This webinar provided an overview of Pakistan's legal and policy framework to deal with climate change issues and manage the risk of extreme climate events and disasters at the federal, provincial and local level. It focused on environmental protection, climate change adaptation and mitigation measures, national disaster risk reduction and management, and climate change litigation. The webinar explored challenges to strengthening institutional capacity and governance to deal with climate change disasters.
