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