Coming to Pakistan, it is a stark reality that, in the past decade, half of South Asia’s population has been affected by one or more climate-related disasters.
Between 1998 and 2019, Pakistan experienced 153 extreme weather events, lost nearly 10,000 lives and suffered tens of billions of dollars in economic loss causing 30 million climate migrants.

This calls for urgent and proactive actions to meet the many challenges posed by climate change whilst achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030 in Pakistan.

Dubai: Climate change threatens to wipe out areas of the Islamic world within two decades, the spiritual leader of around 25 million Muslims said on Saturday.

Many of the world’s Muslims live in a “band of land” under threat from natural disasters caused by climate change, the Aga Khan told a hushed audience gathered at a Dubai hotel. “We’re beginning to see in many parts of the Muslim world … how global warming is beginning to create situations where life is at risk, where it was not at risk before.”
