Pakistan achieves UNDP SDGs to combat ‘climate change’ 10 YEARS before the deadline
All of this was made possible due to the PTI-led government's ambitious projects like 10 Billion Tree Tsunami Programme.
According to Pakistan’s Climate Change Ministry and the UN Development Programme (UNDP), Pakistan has reached its ‘UN Sustainable Development Goal’ for protecting the environment a decade before its deadline.
In a tweet, the Ministry said that Pakistan had achieved an important milestone on the road of environmental protection by meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goal 13.

The UNDP’s Goal-13 demands countries to take action to help combat climate change and the irreversible damage being caused to our ecosystem every day.
‘SDG Index and Dashboards’ is an annual global assessment report of the countries’ pace towards meeting the SDGs.
The Advisor to the Prime Minister on climate change, Malik Amin Aslam said that this achievement is a stepping stone for pursuing other goals, like poverty and hunger eradication, provision of healthcare, clean water, education, gender equality, justice and peace, and sanitation services to people.
He said that this shows Pakistan is committed to global efforts against the challenge of climate change to protect life on earth.
All of this was made possible due to the PTI-led government’s ambitious projects like 10 Billion Tree Tsunami Programme, Clean Green Pakistan Initiative, Eco-system Restoration Fund, and much more.
These initiatives played a role in improving Pakistan’s ecosystem and the environment by mainstreaming adaptation and mitigation through ecologically targetted projects.
