Pakistan's Ministry of Climate Change joins hands with UAE's Blue Carbon for carbon reduction

DUBAI – Pakistan's Ministry of Climate Change and UAE's Blue Carbon collaborated to unlock economic potential in forestry, aligned with global climate goals with a focus on carbon reduction projects and their community benefits.

The Ministry of Climate Change recently hosted a four-day technical workshop with UAE's Blue Carbon that was attended by representatives from the provincial forestry departments, Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) and Gilgit-Baltistan.

The workshop's main goal was to explore how Pakistan's Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) sector can generate carbon credits known as Internationally Transferable Mitigation Outcomes (ITMOs) under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement.

Throughout the workshop, the primary focus was on exploring potential projects to reduce carbon emissions within Pakistan's AFOLU sector, with a specific emphasis on its forests. The in-depth conversations that occurred during these sessions illuminated Pakistan's forest resources and their readiness for Article 6 mechanisms, thereby highlighting potential areas of cooperation with Blue Carbon.
