How is Pakistan affected by climate change?

Experts say that the population in the country has increased a lot, due to which the number of transport is also increasing day by day, which pollutes the air a lot.

Experts say that in view of the increasing population, trees are being cut down in the country and the population is also increasing in that place, which is affecting Pakistan badly.

According to experts, Pakistan needs to seriously think about this issue because if this is not done, the system of life in Pakistan will be badly affected in the coming years. Because Pakistan is not taking any significant measures to deal with rain, heat wave or flood.

Experts say that the topic of climate change is taken seriously all over the world, but it is not taken seriously in Pakistan. The efficiency of district administration can be improved through federal and provincial governments.
