Climate change & Agricultural Sector in Pakistan

by Fayaz Muhammad | 18-02-2020 17:30 recommendations 0 recommendations


                        Climate change is serious threats to Pakistan. Specially agricultural sector of Pakistan is high vulnerable to climate change agricultural sector of Pakistan contribute 25% of GDP and absorbs 42% of the labour force. There are tow min seasons of crop in Pakistan one is Rabi and other is Kharif. These two seasons make Pakistan an agricultural economy its depends on whole year climate. Agriculture sector facing serious challanges from climate change such as, floods, increasing temperature, seasonal variation, drought, high rainfall event, heat waves and rising sea level may result in complete loss of agricultural land.  
                         In recently, Pakistan has experienced number of climate change events, Such as disastrous floods of 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2014, in the flood of 2010 caused a loss of more than 10 billion USD to the eonomy of the country, These impacts are very certical for Pakistan. Although climate change losses in crop production are a threat to agriculture but through adaptation policy these impacts could be reduced. But our country adaptation capacity is very poor due to absence of policy. Main point is that Pakistan has not effective adaptation policy against climate change.
                          Our request to government who taken adaptation initiatives against climate change some suggestion from my side which are given blow

    Hey Fayaz!
    It's your mentor Lisa.

    I love your suggestions especially the training programs and raising awareness parts. And also, I believe that these are some of the solutions that you can start as well! I think especially when it comes to agriculture, it is very important to make the persons in matter feel the need to be aware of climate change and to start changing their methods to both adjust to the changing environment and to pursue sustainability in the environment.

    Great report dear and keep it up:)
