The Ministry of Climate Change (MoCC) is planning to enter into an agreement with a coalition of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) named Civil Society Coalition for Climate Change (CSCCC) soon.
“The MoCC has made many such failed attempts in the past by constituting different committees of think-tanks which comprised so-called civil society members and NGOS aiming to coordinate national and international efforts to create an enabling environment for the promotion of climate change adaptation and mitigation measures,” a former MoCC official told The Express Tribune on the condition of anonymity.
The MOCC Deputy Director Media and Communication Saleem Shaikh said that the objective of this cooperative relationship would be to contribute substantially, on a continuing basis, to sustainable and effective climate actions, ecosystem protection, community well-being, natural resources management and environmental conservation as integral components of social and economic development in Pakistan.
