In particular, China will collaborate with Pakistan to enhance early warning systems, forecasting, monitoring, and disaster preparedness response mechanisms. The country will provide Pakistan with 5,000 sets of solar home systems and conduct capacity-building programs for Pakistani officials. This represents the first instance of China extending such services to Pakistani officials.

Ambassador Moin expressed appreciation for the Chinese government’s support and praised the collaboration between the two nations in addressing climate change. He also commended the Global Development Initiative (GDI), which aims to strengthen cooperation among developing countries in pursuit of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, with a specific focus on climate action.

Recalling China’s assistance to Pakistan during the climate-induced floods of 2021, Ambassador Moin emphasized the significance of this partnership. The MoU underscores Pakistan’s role as the inaugural partner country of GDI, highlighting climate change as a central area of cooperation between the two nations.
