Swiss Foreign Minister Ignazio Cassis and the head of Pakistan’s disaster management authority, Lieutenant General Inam Haider Malik, signed a Memorandum of Understanding at the Nathia Gali resort, to cooperate on ways to manage natural disaster risks The Swiss foreign minister, who was on a three-day visit to Pakistan, said the MoU signing was a “vital step” in helping Pakistan overcome the catastrophic effects of climate change. The situation in Pakistan was a “stark reminder” of the urgent need for international cooperation against climate change beyond borders, he added. Pakistan’s Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, present at the event, said that despite his country’s less than one percent contribution to carbon emissions, it was bearing the brunt of global climate disasters. https://apnews.com/article/pakistan-switzerland-climate-change-bb14c99b042c1c0470ec4645aa163927

                It is encouraging to see Pakistan and Switzerland working together to address the issue of climate-related disaster risks. This cooperation is essential to ensure that the people of Pakistan are better equipped to handle the potential risks caused by future natural disasters. We hope that this partnership can help create innovative solutions to managing risks and build resilience against natural disasters.
