Big Storm Coming
In this edition of Development Dilemmas, we are in Pakistan's southern port city Karachi, whose far expanding coastal areas have been under the threat of major cyclones time and again. Though Karachi itself survived the threats but the cyclonic movements have caused tremendous loss of livelihood for the communities dependent on the natural resources in other parts beyond Karachi. Climate change is a global phenomenon but largely the people and government are unaware of its consequences and subsequent strategies to cope with the changes. First, we talk to Rab Nawaz, Coordinator for Natural Resources Management with World Wide Fund for Nature, Pakistan. We also talk to Tanveer Arif, Chief Executive Officer of the Society for Conservation and Protection of Environment; and, Arif Pervaiz, who is an independent environment expert. Our Pakistan correspondent Asadullah Khan moderates this session.
