Keeping in view the growing climate change threats, Khan, during his election campaign, had also pledged to initiate a countrywide tree plantation programme for a protected future.

Malik Amin Aslam, who drafted the climate change section of the PTI manifesto, while talking to a private news media had said: “Pakistan is facing the brunt of climate change, so I think climate preparation, making sure our development is totally climate compatible, our infrastructure is resilient to climate shocks, is going to be very high priority.”

Its manifesto pledges include the building dams and water conservation initiatives; introducing green building codes and supporting clean energy.
