Foreign Minister Jalil Abbas Jilani said on Thursday that Pakistan was committed to delivering rapid response on climate change and meeting the global goals to reduce its devastating impact.

At a pre-COP28 (Conference of the Parties to the Convention) seminar titled ‘Pakistan’s roadmap for upcoming conference in Dubai’, the minister emphasised Pakistan’s willingness to contribute to the solution to address climate change.

The seminar was hosted by the Civil Society Coalition for Climate Change (CSCCC), with the support of the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) and the United Arab Emirates Embassy in Pakistan.

The event served as a platform for government officials, experts, academia, civil society representatives, and the media to come together and strategise for Pakistan’s role in the upcoming COP28, scheduled to commence next month in Dubai.

Jilani highlighted the pivotal role of the Global Stocktake in achieving global course correction, which, he termed, crucial for the success of COP28. He added that Pakistan was set to play a constructive role in dealing with the urgency of course correction to ensure a brighter future for the children.

Information Minister Murtaza Solangi, Climate Change Secretary Asif Hyder Shah, Deputy Head of Mission at the UAE Embassy Rashid Abdel Rehman Al Ali, CSCCC Chief Executive Aisha Khan, USIP Country Director Imran Khan also spoke on the occasion.
