In recognition of the environment-friendly initiatives launched under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan, the World Economic Forum (WEF) has invited Pakistan to join its Global Champions for Nature community.
Part of WEF’s Nature Action Agenda, the Champions for Nature is a community of leaders disrupting business-as-usual to lead the way to a nature-positive global economy and stop nature loss by 2030.
Head South Asia Member of the Executive Committee of Champions for Nature community, Viraj Mehta, acknowledged Pakistan’s environment-friendly efforts and wrote in an official letter:
Pakistan’s holistic approach to fighting climate change, nature degradation, and loss of livelihoods holds lessons for us all.
Adviser to the Prime Minister on Climate Change, Malik Amin Aslam, while speaking on the development, said:
Pakistan has been selected to Global Champions for Nature community by the WEF in recognition of the green policies of PM Imran Khan including the 10 Billion Tree Tsunami Project, Clean Green Pakistan Initiative, Clean Green Pakistan Index, Protected Areas Initiative, Eco-system Restoration Fund, Plastic-Free Pakistan Initiative, and Recharge Pakistan Initiative.
