Climate change has become a major threat to the globe and now affecting every continent. It is threatening lives, economies and infrastructure dearly today and even more tomorrow. Weather patterns are changing, sea levels are rising, weather events are becoming more extreme and greenhouse gas emissions are now at their highest levels in history. Without action, the world’s average surface temperature is likely to surpass 3 degrees centigrade this century. The poorest and most vulnerable people are being affected the most.
That climate is changing and is creating new challenges in the field of environment, energy and food production. Right guidance and timely action is needed to address the challenge through mitigation and adaptation. University of Chitral dedicatedly founded the “Climate Change Centre” to carry research and find eco-friendly solutions of the emerging global problem. This initiative is to prepare University and other relevant institutions to offer relevant support in preparing stakeholders to deal with impacts of these changes.
