Country’s 1st Climate Change Authority established
May 18, 2024

The Federal Government has established the country’s first “Climate Change Authority” under the Climate Change Act 2017.

A three-member Supreme Court bench in its judgment had directed the Federal Government to establish the Climate Change Authority to cope with the risk of global warming and environmental degradation.  

Climate Change Act 2017 states that the headquarters of the Authority will be in Islamabad and it may set up its offices at other places as per the requirement.
