The National Climate Change Policy provides a framework for addressing the issues that Pakistan faces or will face in future due to the changing climate. In October 2008, Mr. Salman Faruqui, Deputy Chairman, Planning Commission, established a Task Force on Climate Change under Dr. Ishfaq Ahmad, Advisor Science and Technology. The report of that Task Force has been used as a building block for the preparation of this policy. Furthermore, extensive consultations with provincial and federal ministries, institutions and civil society provided valuable inputs to the policy document.
