Scoping a combined programme on climate compatible development for Pakistan
Project reference: TAAS-0028
The focus of this project is to support the Government of Pakistan in developing and scoping a nationally appropriate programme of work on climate compatible development. It will build on work done to date on climate change in Pakistan and connect the government’s newly approved National Climate Change Policy to action on the ground. The work programme will consist of a number of distinct yet sequenced and integrated work packages, each one ambitious and innovative in nature and with initial donor interest behind them.
Climate compatible development affects all sectors, not just the environment, so for this project, Pakistan’s Ministry of Climate Change will evolve a shared understanding of climate compatible development across different government departments and through involving a wider cross section of stakeholders, including the donor community. Together, the stakeholders will come to an agreement on a set of prioritized practical projects for funding.
The task of the consortium leading this project is to help identify these projects and write their terms of reference. With due process, potential projects targeting the most vulnerable will be selected and framed.
The project will bring together key representatives of government ministries, experts who have been tirelessly working for climate change efforts for several years now and new energy for leadership and innovation that can broaden the dialogue and ensure action is taken. Four to five work packages will be agreed in critical areas of climate compatible development in Pakistan, which will be useful to mobilize action, learning and delivery in areas such as water, energy, food security and disaster management.
The project aims to tackle disconnects between policy and implementation and the views and the experiences of different sectors on this complex but vital agenda.
