A memorandum of understanding was signed on Tuesday between the climate change ministry and the World Bank.

Prime Minister Imran Khan was the chief guest on the occasion.


According to the PM Office, Pakistan will be assisted in implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions under the Paris Agreement.

Addressing the ceremony, the premier highlighted that Pakistan was among the top 10 countries most vulnerable to climate change.

“It is important for the nation to realise that we must take steps to avert climate change for our coming generations.”

PM Imran informed the participants that he had seen the effects of global warming throughout his life.

“Around 20 to 25 years ago, people who used to live in villages and mountainous regions started to say that temperatures are rising,” he said. “They complained that the amount of rainfall had decreased and it had become hotter.”
