Climate Catastrophe

Pakistan is one of those countries, which make comparatively insignificant contribution to the causes of climate change but are extremely vulnerable to its effects. From coastal populations in the south to those relying on snow-fed rivers for agriculture in the north have become vulnerable communities. Agricultural productivity has been hit hard by the changes in land and water regimes. According to the officials, dry lands areas in arid and semi-arid regions are most vulnerable and affected agriculture productivity, putting the country's food security at risk. The country intends to develop efficient water management systems, create mass awareness campaign and change cropping patterns. However these measures need additional financial resources that are already scarce. Tragic part of the story is that the country's vulnerability to climate change is inflamed by apparent failures in governance, non-sustainable use of resources and ignorance.
