Partnership and Alliances

Linkages and alliances are integral elements for the success of any programme. Through such endeavors, we not only aim to reach out to experience and expertise but also bring credibility, global niche and state-of-the-art thinking on CC. New partnerships with key national, regional and international institutions would be formed for sharing of knowledge, mutual learning and joint initiatives.

LEAD Pakistan has reached out to key national, regional and international institutions for partnerships and alliances to share knowledge, mutual learning and joint initiatives. These include:

Global Change Impact Study Center (GCISC)
GCISC was established in May 2002 with the primary purpose of aiding national planners in strategic policy making keeping in view the changing the global environment. Key objectives of the Centre include tracking climate trends, analyzing CC impacts on different sectors of development, building capacity for research and raising awareness on CC issues. The current research activities of the centre are grouped in four sections: Agriculture, Climatology, Water Resources and Environmental pollution.

The objective of this research institution is to promote scientific and technological cooperation and coordination
among OIC member countries. The institution has a strong and diverse team of scientists belonging to various disciplines and works in collaboration with GCSIC on climate change issues. It can play an important role in assessing regional climate change impacts through collaboration with other neighboring OIC member states.

The Metrological Department of Pakistan
The Pakistan Meteorological Department is both a scientific and a service department, which is responsible for providing meteorological service throughout Pakistan to wide variety of interest and for numerous public activities and projects which require weather information.

Capital Development Authority (CDA)
LEAD has signed an MOU with the city government (Capital Development Authority - CDA) of Islamabad to assist them in training and capacity building in order to meet challenges posed by urban disasters.

Pakistan Institute of Development Economics (PIDE)
In March 2008, LEAD partnered with PIDE to arrange a panel/session on CC during the 23rd Annual Conference of the Pakistan Society of Development Economists. We hope to build upon this relationship and bring economists into our ambit and initiate some research on building the economic case for climate change.
