The provincial government is taking steps to mitigate the impact of environmental issues and climate change, says Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan Alyani.
Chairing a meeting of the Balo­chistan Environmental Protection Council (BEPC) on Monday, he said: “Balochistan is already facing serious environmental issues, particularly water scarcity and drought, thus we need to come up with concrete measures, besides creating awareness about the impact of climate change.”
The provincial government took a lead in forming the BECP, following reports of the last conference of International Panel for Climate Change (IPCC). Its main objective was to study and come up with result-oriented recommendations over climate change and environmental degradation.
Participants of the conference, including environmental experts, discussed in length environmental issues, climate change and the working pattern of the BEPC.
