On Saturday, Prime Minister Imran Khan stated that by 2030, 60% of all energy delivered in Pakistan will be “perfect” and through sustainable assets.
“Power will be used by 30 percent of the nation’s automobiles,” he noted.
The remarks were made by the chief while speaking at the Climate Ambition Summit 2020. The culmination, according to the Prime Minister’s Office, was a significant level virtual event hung on the occasion of the fifth commemoration of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
PM Imran began his speech by stating that Pakistan contributes less than 1% of global discharges.
“Unfortunately, we are the sixth most vulnerable country to climate change. We’ve decided right away that we’ll have nature-based solutions to mitigate the effects of climate change.”
He declared that during the next three years, he will plant 10 billion trees. He also stated that the number of public stops and protected areas has been increased from 30 to 45.
“Simultaneously, we have determined that we will not be reliant on coal for power. We just rejected two coal power lines that were expected to produce 2,600MW of energy and replaced them with hydropower.”
He went on to say that, in the end, the public authority chose to deliver energy by “coal to fluid” or “coal to gas” rather than burning coal.
He ended his speech by stating unequivocally that Pakistan will make every effort to mitigate the effects of climate change.
