Climate Change: Augmented risks for Pakistan

Climate Change fetches more dangers for Pakistan. It has been observed that in coming 24 years, a strong rise in temperature will be debatable. Asymmetrical and unexpected rains have dramatically reduced the rice and wheat yield per acre. Pakistan is under clear threats of climate change. According to resources till 2040, rains in summer will be 25% and in winter will be reduced by 12%. Also a sharp rise in temperature will be the next huge problem for Pakistan and its agriculture. How to tackle this situation? Dr. Ashfaq Chattha the climate change expert told media that we must change the sowing time and planting methods for our crops. We must develop and introduce such verities of Wheat and Cotton which must have huge resistance against drought and extreme temperature.

With the rise in temperature, water requirement for crops also upsurges. Irregular rains are poisonous for crops as well. DG Met Dr. Ghulam Rasool said rain at harvesting timing of crops simply destroys the whole matured crop. Climate Expert Dr. Qamar uz Zaman said, we must accelerate our research and development progression in Agriculture. Agriculture research and development institutes should develop and introduce such verities of Wheat and Cotton who could show higher resistance against drought and climate change. Overall in order to tackle climate change we must review our strategy.
