Keywords:Climate Change Policy, loopholes, hurdles, mitigation, adaptation
“This research article investigates the challenges and gaps in Pakistan's climate change policy implementation. It summarizes the policy's evolution, aims, and significant efforts. Key problems identified in the study include a lack of political will, insufficient institutional capacity, financial limits, a lack of public awareness, and conflicting development goals. Recommendations are made to address these issues, including strengthening political commitment and governance structures, improving institutional capacity and coordination, allocating adequate financial resources, increasing public awareness through education and outreach, incorporating climate change considerations into sectoral policies, improving monitoring and enforcement mechanisms, and fostering international collaboration. The article also includes case studies from various nations that show particular examples of policy implementation issues and successful approaches. It continues by emphasizing the need of prioritising climate change on Pakistan's policy agenda and urging policymakers and stakeholders to take action in order to successfully address the issues and secure a sustainable future.”
