Press Release: Pakistan Commits to Cut 50% of its GHG Emissions by 2030 in its Revised NDC
CLASP congratulates the Government of Pakistan for its submission of revised Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) to the UNFCCC and its commitment to accelerate the transition towards a climate-resilient economy.
Pakistan has been identified by Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) as one of nine countries where lack of access to cooling is a major challenge due to extreme heat. As a producer of only 1% of the world’s total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, their revised Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) aims to decrease their output further, with a proposed overall GHG emissions reduction of 50% by 2030.
Part of this commitment includes the development of a Pakistan Cooling Action Program, which would seek to address an increasing need for cooling technology with minimal impact to the environment. With support from the Clean Cooling Collaborative’s NDC Support Facility for Efficient, Climate-friendly Cooling, CLASP and its partner HIMA^Verte will collaborate with the Ministry of Climate Change, the National Energy Efficiency & Conservation Authority, and WWF-Pakistan to pave the path toward a efficient, climate-friendly cooling future.
