Islamabad, July 9, 2021 (TDI) — The Pakistan Agricultural Research Centre (PARC) along with the German non-governmental organization Welthungerhilfe and the Thardeep Rural Development (TRDP) arranged a conference on climate change, agriculture and food security in Pakistan.
Syed Fakhar Imam, Minister of NFSR, was among the attendants and voiced his concern and the government’s awareness of the challenge posed by climate change. Stressing the effect on Sindh and Thar desert, he said that Pakistan Agriculture Research Council was coming up with various feasible solutions to rejuvenate the barren lands for agriculture. Improvement in agriculture can also help save Pakistan from importing various agricultural goods.
Pakistan is one of the most vulnerable to climate change and its negative effects and is working to adapt to the situation, said the German Ambassador to Pakistan, Bernard Schlagheck. He also lauded the engagement supported by the Government of Pakistan.
