Role of the Center for Climate Change

(CCCS)

As the effects of Climate Change are becoming more visible across the globe, vulnerable developing countries including Pakistan, are trying to understand the threats they will face in future. Environmental changes because of the growing population and changing life style is to be addressed in the near future. China-Pakistan Economic corridor (CPEC) which is passing through Chitral and Giligit Baltistan is also a major focus of this centre. Domestic traffic, from down areas add up to huge flow of vehicles which are also a source of noise pollution in the area. The growing trade with china will highly increase the demand for the transport of goods across the border which may cause growing traffic along this route and will finally result in air and noise pollution in the valleys. The ecosystems in the mountainous area are very sensitive, especially in high altitude regions where they are also exposed to climatic stress. Mountainous forests have an important protective role against avalanches, soil erosion and landslides. Air pollution has therefore more negative consequences on these areas than outside the mountains. Both air pollution and noise counter act the expectations of tourists and the construction will also create visual pollution in the area. Our role is;
