Pakistan invited to join WEF’s Champions for Nature community

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has been invited to join the Champions for Nature community at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in recognition of the green policies introduced by Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Champions for Nature initiative was launched during the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum at Davos in January 2020. In their first year, the Champions recognise that their community is well-positioned to support a green post-COVID-19 recovery through systems transformation for the benefit of human health and nature.

Special Assistant to Prime Minister on climate change Malik Amin Aslam announced the development on Twitter, saying that Pakistan made it to the community in recognition of its various initiatives to combat climate hazards.

“Good news for Pakistan – the country got selected to be a global Champion For Nature by the WEF in global recognition of the Green policies of Prime Minister Imran Khan including 10 Billion Tree Tsunami, Green Stimulus, and Protected Areas Initiative,” the adviser wrote on Twitter.

In a press release, Malik Amin Aslam said, “This is indeed a remarkable achievement for the country to receive the globally-recognized title at the upcoming annual meeting of the World Economic Forum.”

He further said, “It is a glaring recognition of the incumbent government’s globally-acclaimed green agenda and policies as a part of the PM Imran Khan’s vision for Clean and Green Pakistan and its contribution towards overall global ecological sustainability and biodiverse conservation and protection.”  

Earlier in August, Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Tiger Force planted trees as part of the 10 Billion Tree Tsunami initiative. The government also introduced the Green Stimulus project, aimed at promoting plantation, setting up nurseries and natural forests.
