CJP Isa Proposes Providing Bicycles to Judges at Climate Conference

Climate Conference

ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Qazi Faez Isa emphasized the urgency of adopting eco-friendly measures and healthier lifestyles to combat the challenges posed by climate change.

Addressing a climate change conference hosted by the Supreme Court, titled “Navigating Climate Governance: Executive Action and Judicial Oversight,” CJP Isa highlighted the importance of collective action from both governmental and judicial sectors, alongside expert input from environmentalists and notable speakers.

Drawing parallels between human health and the planet’s well-being, CJP Isa likened the Earth’s condition to that of a feverish body, absorbing harmful emissions akin to smoke.

He underscored the global issue of plastic pollution and the lack of effective disposal mechanisms, urging for a shift towards sustainable practices.

In advocating for a return to nature-oriented lifestyles, CJP Isa referenced the medical community’s recommendation to prioritize plant-based diets and physical activity over sedentary habits.

He suggested the provision of bicycles to judges as a means to encourage active transportation, emphasizing the importance of reducing carbon emissions.

Highlighting the severe consequences of neglecting environmental conservation, CJP Isa emphasized the need for a cultural shift towards resource conservation and sustainability.

He stressed the role of individual responsibility in mitigating climate change and protecting natural ecosystems.

Pakistan, despite contributing less than 1% to global emissions, faces significant climate-related challenges such as floods, droughts, and water scarcity.

The National Drought Monitoring Centre (NDMC) of the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) issued advisories warning of potential flash droughts triggered by heatwaves, which could exacerbate agricultural and water resource issues.

In response, the NDMC urged stakeholders to take preemptive measures to mitigate the impact of droughts on agriculture, water resources, and ecosystems.

These measures include disaster preparedness strategies and sustainable water management practices to address the looming challenges posed by climate change in Pakistan.
