Mushahidullah Khan, who is in the position of Federal Minister for Climate Change Senator in Pakistan, has recently expressed his high appreciation with the French President summon for a treaty regarding the situation of climate change. Mushahidullah Khan has stated that Pakistan is open to such an agreement and that the problem of the climate change and also avoiding the negative effects of such a phenomenon as much as possible is a top priority for the Eastern country in the same measure it is for the European states and for the United States of America as well. So we have some good news for the people who have interest in the environmental problems, as Pakistan agrees with French President on climate treaty.
The main purpose of such a clime treaty is to create a context in which the rich countries will have the capability of effectively contributing to the struggles of the countries which have a less confident economy against the negative effects of the clime change. The treaty requires the rich countries to contribute with an amount of 100 billion dollars on a yearly basis to a fund whose most important target is to facilitate the combat against climate change in the less economically powerful areas. The agreement is seen as a 5 year treaty, demanding the states participating within the treaty to contribute until 2020.
Most analysts in the field have estimated that it is most probable that the treaty will be signed sometimes this year in Paris. The Pakistani minister has also added to his appreciative declaration that the success of such a treaty is assured by the necessary involvement of the countries which pollute the most. Among them, the Pakistani minister has named the United Kingdom, the Unite States, Germany, Canada and Poland.
This is a long thought and considered plan. In 2009, in Copenhagen, the United Nations has stated that such a climate treaty was a needed improvement to the status quo of the international battle against the sever waters, the rise of the global ocean and other negative effects that climate change inflicts upon our human civilization. At that moment, the economically stable states were urged to configure a way in which they would be able to contribute with a 100 billion dollar yearly amount by 2020, in order to lend a hand to the poorer countries.
“But, it is a matter of grave concern for the developing countries, including Pakistan that rich countries have contributed so far around 42 per cent of the $10.2 billion,”
the Pakistani minister has added.
