Supporting Climate-Compatible Development in Pakistan

IISD led the identification of readiness activities in Pakistan that will lay the groundwork for comprehensive, long-term adaptation and mitigation action, and support the implementation of the country's National Climate Change Policy.

The output was a work program focused on readiness actions needed to move Pakistan toward the development of an evidence base for identifying priority adaptation and mitigation actions, the establishment of appropriate institutions and stakeholder engagement processes, and the demonstration of preparedness to effectively and efficiently use international financial support. As background to this study, IISD prepared a situational analysis on adaptation. A similar study, focused on mitigation opportunities in Pakistan, was prepared by IISD and its project partner, the Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands.
