Road to Katowice: Setting Pakistan’s Agenda for Climate Negotiations (COP24)

The global community will come together in Katowice, Poland in December 2018 to move forward discussions on making progress towards a climate resilient future. A recent report by the IPCC has highlighted the urgency required to mitigate the impacts of climate change so that the global rise of temperatures could be limited to 1.5 degrees. The business as usual approach will take us beyond the 3 degree mark which will be catastrophic, especially for the most vulnerable nations such as Pakistan.
In this context Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI) will hold a seminar titled “Road to Katowice: Setting Pakistan’s Agenda for Climate Negotiations (COP24)” to discuss the way forward in light of the latest scientific research. Representatives from the government, civil society and academia are expected to discuss Pakistan’s contributions to the dialogue that will take place in Katowice later this year. The discussion will also delve into the mitigation and adaptation efforts currently underway in Pakistan.
