Climate Change Mitigation
Climate change is one of the most critical global challenges of today's age, and the world is going to be more vulnerable to respond to the effects of climate change. Droughts and disasters, ozone layer depletion, sea level rising, species extinction, accelerated erosion of coastal zones are the major visible outcomes of unmanaged climate.
In Pakistan the GEF SGP has concentrated this global issue and has stepped up 57 community based projects to reduce effects of climate change for a balanced environment. These projects demonstrate the sustainable, environment friendly, socially acceptable and economically viable solutions to mitigate climate change at the local level and impacting at the globe.
Projects are implemented according following GEF Operational Programmes
OP11 - Promoting Environmentally Sustainable Transport
OP5 - Removal of Barriers to Energy Efficiency and Energy Conservation
OP6 - Promoting the Adoption of Renewable Energy by Removing Barriers and Reducing Implementation Costs
