Tackling climate change ‘Invest in green tech’

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan needs to make fundamental changes in production and consumption
 
patterns and the services sector to tackle climate issues and vulnerabilities, says Climate Change
 
Minister Zahid Hamid. 
 
All sections of society including government departments, the private sector and individuals
 
must play their part in bringing about this transformation to sustainable consumption and
 
production patterns, which is an essential requirement of development, Climate Change Minister
 
Zahid Hamid said at a two-day workshop on sustainable consumption and production organised
 
by the Ministry of Climate Change.
 
He stressed the need for an efficient and affordable use of natural resources which can reduce
 
vulnerabilities to climate change and help achieve food, water and energy security, lessen
 
pressure on natural resources.
 
UNDP representative in Pakistan Neil Buhne said Pakistan’s huge population presented a major
 
challenge.
 
He said that the government’s Vision 2025 was analogous to the SDGs. He highlighted that
 
plastic bags were a threat to the environment and that a fee for plastic bags similar to the UK and
 
other countries could reduce their use.
