Sherry Rehman holds telephone talks with US Envoy for Climate John Kerry

Minister for Climate Change Sherry Rehman says technical and financial assistance is the need of the hour for the energy transition in climate-vulnerable countries.

She was talking to the United States Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry on the telephone.

They discussed a need for just energy transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy and committed to a renewed working partnership between PAK-US.

Furthermore, they talked about Pakistan’s commitment to a Global Methane Pledge, and suggested cooperation on the path forward. 

The Minister underscored that Pakistan is consistently placed in the top ten most vulnerable countries in the world impacted by climate change which has now become an existential threat to the country.

She apprised Senator Kerry about Pakistan’s accelerated vulnerability to the climate crisis, saying that despite producing less than one percent of Green House Gases emissions Pakistan is now the ground zero of a global climate catastrophe.

Sherry Rehman also appreciated the Biden administration’s commitments to global climate goals and thanked Senator Kerry for his strong personal leadership of these most defining challenges for the 21st century.
