Climate Action and Natural resource management

According the SGS goal 13, there is no country that is not experiencing the drastic effects of climate change. Greenhouse gas emissions are more than 50 percent higher than in 1990. Global warming is causing long-lasting changes to our climate system, which threatens irreversible consequences if we do not act. The annual average economic losses from climate-related disasters are in the hundreds of billions of dollars. This is not to mention the human impact of geo-physical disasters, which are 91 percent climate-related. Water is becoming a source of conflict and competition; growing poverty, social inequalities, water scarcity and climate uncertainty are all interconnected contexts within which an understanding of relations and their intersection with water and equity needs to be located. These processes particularly affect the lives of poor, often access and rights to water are mediated through their social and economic position in society. Land degradation and mismanagement of water resources is among major issues of barrage area. In Thar underground water is depleting and getting brackish. Granite and China clay mining in the mountains of Karoonjhar are destroying the natural habitat jeopardizing echo-system in the area. The planned mining of the coal will trigger an environmental disaster with fluoride contaminating ground as well as surface water resources. Grazing lands are shrinking and some species are on verge of extinction. There is no let up in hunting of deer, hubara bustered and peacock with official patronage; species are threatened. HF is struggling to over the problems of mismanagement of natural resources and raise awareness for use of these resources judiciously.

Integrated agriculture and livelihood

According to Pakistan's officials understanding, people between 15 to 29 years of age are youth, whereas the United Nations considers youth to those people who fall between the age brackets of 15-24 years. These comprise approximately 70 percent of the total population of Pakistan. Although youth have played a constructive role in social and economical transactions, academics have also noted a strong correlation between large youth populations and socio-economical stability, especially in developing countries. Pakistan's educational system does a poor job of preparing young people for the workforce or teaching them to think critically. Civil society groups have been less active in providing spaces for youths and women to participate and engage in promotion of arts, culture, sports and tourism that increase tolerance, and respect for the society and national solidarity. Without a critical mass of young activists and leaders dedicated to promote a vision of a tolerant, peaceful, and democratic country.
