One Nation - One Vision
Ministry of Planning,

Government of Pakistan
For a nation to progress it must have a clear idea of its longer-term aspirations. Without this clarity it will neither be able to prepare a coherent roadmap for action nor adopt and implement the policies that would lead towards the objectives. A national vision is meant to provide clarity to our shared vision of the future. Indeed, Pakistan was founded on such a vision—the “Pakistani Dream”, a vision of a prosperous, equitable, tolerant, and dynamic society—which was at the heart of the Independence Movement, even if, over the years, its clarity has diminished. It was the foundational vision for the new country, inspired by that generation of leaders, and articulated through the struggles of our people for independence and nationhood. The purpose of this document and all that has gone into its preparation is to recreate this vision, re-build upon it, and help translate it into reality.

An overwhelming majority of scientists, experts, and professional scientific organizations related to earth sciences agree that evidences are sufficient that climate change is real. Some may still deny this overwhelming judgment of science, but none can deny the devastating impact of increase in frequency and intensity of climate extremes. Further, most of the experts agree that the major cause is human activities, which include a complex interaction with the natural environment coupled with social and economic changes, that are increasing the heat trapping CO2 and other greenhouse gases (GHG) in the atmosphere, which are increasing global temperature and in turn causing
The climate system is a highly complex system consisting of the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, the Cryosphere, the
land surface and the biosphere, and the interactions between them. The climate system evolves in time under the
influence of its own internal dynamics and because of external forcings. (Source: IPCC). These interactions operate over a large span of spatial and temporal scales. Because of this complexity our understanding of climate change will always be limited.
