BONN, GERMANY: Federal Minister for Climate Change Senator Mushahidullah Khan came to a high-level ministerial event in Bonn on Tuesday evening prepared with a written speech for the COP23 meet, only to discover that the ministers were instead required to speak extempore, as questions were asked directly by the moderator.

The event was called ‘Champions for Climate Action: The NDC Partnership’ and was attended by ministers from over 30 countries.
Hence, for the sake of brevity, the moderator called each minister on stage to give a short statement on why Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) are important.

NDCs are voluntary national plans to cut carbon emissions that have been submitted by each country to the UNFCC under the Paris Agreement of 2015.

The Pakistani minister, unable to answer a simple question regarding the relevance of NDCs to Pakistan briefly, insisted upon giving his 5 minutes long written speech, much to the consternation of the moderator. Since a concert of Beethoven’s melodies had been scheduled for delegates the same evening, time was running short.

The moderator allowed Khan two minutes to give his written speech at the podium, which ended up lasting for more than double the time he had been allocated. There were other ministers at the event who could not speak English well, and had their brief comments translated instead.

The jam-packed hall, full of global media, ministers’ entourages and heads from the Asian Development Bank and the Global Environment Facility, initially found it amusing, but it was nevertheless an extremely embarrassing moment for Pakistan with all the world watching.

A minister from the small island of St Lucia in the Caribbean, who followed Mushahidullah, gave an eloquent reply to the moderator questions, stating that: “NDCs are at the intersection of the conversation we are having at home and the actions required under the Paris Agreement”. She added that given the island’s financial constraints, with adequate financial support “there is greater hope we can meet our NDC goal”.

The NDC Partnership is a global initiative to help countries achieve their national climate commitments and ensure financial and technical assistance is delivered as efficiently as possible.

The idea behind the event in Bonn was for ministers and heads of organizations from NDC Partnership member countries to share their experiences working together to achieve their climate and sustainable development targets.

Pakistan vulnerable to desertification


Pakistan re-submitted its NDC document to the UN last year in which it estimates a four-fold increase in the country’s carbon emissions by 2030. The country pledges to cut its emissions 20% by 2030, contingent upon a US $40 billion aid promise.

In each NDC, countries have publicly outlined the post-2020 climate actions they intend to take under the Paris Agreement. The climate actions communicated in these NDCs largely determine whether the world achieves the long-term goals of the Paris Accord to hold the increase in global average temperature to well below 2°C and to achieve net zero emissions worldwide in the second half of this century.

I love your aggression

جیسا نواز شریف چور ویسے اسکے وزیر چور
جیسے نواز شریف پرچیوں پر چلتا تھا ویسے اسکے وزیر پرچی پر چلتے ہیں
جیسے نواز شریف صحافیوں کے سوالات کا سامنا نہیں کر سکتا ویسے اسکے وزیر
سوال گندم ، جواب چنا

سب سے زیادہ دلچسپ خبر یہ تھی

Pakistan re-submitted its NDC document to the UN last year in which it estimates a four-fold increase in the country’s carbon emissions by 2030. The country pledges to cut its emissions 20% by 2030, contingent upon a US $40 billion aid promise.

جسطرح نواز شریف کی تاریخ جھوٹ پر مبنی ہے ، اسطرح یہ لوگ انٹرنیشنل برادری کو بھی بیوقوف بنا رہیں ہیں
ایک طرف پاکستان میں درخت کاٹ رہیں ہیں اور بجلی کے منصوبے کے لئے کوئلے کے منصوبے لگ رہیں ہوں دوسری طرف ہمیشہ کے لئے جانے والے انٹرنیشنل اداروں کو بیوقوف بنا کر ٤٠ بلین ڈالر ہڑپ کرنا چاہتے ہیں
خیبر پختونخوا میں درخت لگنے کی موھم شروع ہوئی ، یہ کنجر مذاق اڑاتے رہے

مذاق کی حد ہوتی ہے ، انلوگوں نے پاکستان کو مذاق بنا کر رکھا اور اب بیرونی دوروں پر بھی یہی کچھ کر رہیں ہیں
دنیا کو کیسے بیوقوف بنانا ہے کوئی ان سے سیکھے

کل تک ٹیم مقابل نے ماحولیات کے مسلہ پر آسمان سر پر اٹھایا ہوا تھا
١٦ نومبر ٢٠١٧ کو ایکسپریس ٹریبیون کی خبر کو رؤف کلاسرا نے اپنے پروگرام کے آخر میں صرف ایک منٹ میں فارخ کر دیا
اندازہ کریں ہمارے پیشہ ور صحافتی طوائفوں کی پیشہ ور صلاحیت کا
وہ کریں تو رام لیلا
ہم کریں تو سالہ کرکٹر ڈھیلا

ٹیم مقابل نے جسطرح ماحولیات پر ٹیمپو رکھا تھا ، کیا اسکو مولویوں پر فضیلت دی جانی چاہیے ؟
ایک طرف دنیا ٢ فیصد امیشن گھٹانے پر بات کی جا رہی ہے
ایک طرف ٤٠ بلین ڈالر کی امداد تھی

مگر رؤف کلاسرا کا بھاشن ہمیشہ کی طرح گنجی کبوتری کی ارد گرد گھومتا رہا
ایک طرف رؤف کلاسرا گنجی کبوتری کی مداح سرائی کر رہا تھا کے اس نے بلکل ٹھیک کیا تھا کیونکے سکندر کے ساتھ بچے تھے اور دوسری طرف حکومت پاکستان کو طعنے کے ریاست کے اندر ریاست اور حکومت ناکام ،اس قدر دوغلی سوچ کوئی ایک نششت میں کیسے کر سکتا تھا ؟
کیا اپ لوگ سمجھتے ہیں کے ٹیم مقابل کو اتنی بڑ ی خبراپنے پروگرام کے آخر میں صرف ١ منٹ دینا چاہہے تھا ؟
کیا یہ پیشاورانہ جلن کی وجہ تھی ؟

Great opportunity lost!

Politics aside, I wish the Federal Government had nominated Imran Khan and the Secretary Environment KPK to represent Pakistan at this all important event. This was the God gifted opportunity to get great laurels for Pakistan by telling the world of their recently concluded successful 1.2 Billion trees plantation project in KPK, and a further 5 year plan of another 2 billion more trees plantation. Pakistan would have gotten maximum attention on the world stage on this success story and would have gotten handsome financial aid to replicate the project in the country.

These jokers will never learn from anything.

Thanks for your comment.

Well, Nomination of Imran Khan does not make sense since he does not hold any public office.
As a public, we must understand what world is trying to achieve.
Every country is trying to bring down emission by 2%
In Pakistan, this ministry is a money minting machine . If i am not wrong then Zardari was once Minister of Environment.
Suppose if they plant 1000 trees then there is no way to audit the survival rate therefore everything remains on the paper and money goes into the personal pocket.
PTI is claiming that survival rate is 80 percent. This make sense since they are being monitored by world agency. This make sense since they took initiative on their own and it was in their manifesto and their leader wanted to achieve Bonn challenge which they eventually did. Precisely, world knows about the KP achievements.

Coming back to national level, there are four other provinces which have toothless governments.
Punjab consist of 60 percent Pakistan. What Punjab Government is doing.Instead of bringing down emission, they are spreading it to India.
Punjab has deforested 75 percent land. They are building a coal project. This means that GOP is misleading the world but submitting fake papers and estimations.
They are cheating the world in day light.

Lets suppose if Pakistan is being represented by a genius environmentalist. How could he represent Pakistan in the absence of factual figures?
Punjab is being run by a retard. His entire politics revolve around winning elections.
What are we going to tell the world about Punjab?
Chine is abandoning coal power plants and we are installing it.

Last but not least, I am totally pissed off by team Muqabil. They have done a great job by highlighting the issue but when the time has arrived that they should take this issue to the next level, they have totally ignored this news. This was their time to go Global but " Paindu " has wasted it big time.
