ISLAMABAD, Nov. 21 (Xinhua) -- Pakistan's caretaker Prime Minister Anwar-ul-Haq Kakar said that concerted efforts are needed at the international level to save developing nations from the adverse impacts of climate change.

"Climate change has become a national issue of survival for the developing nations including Pakistan ... required steps at global level in urgent need for fighting the climate change issue," the prime minister said during a meeting on climate change on Monday.

He said that Pakistan, despite its lesser share of below 1 percent carbon imprints in global climate change, is among the most affected countries in the world.

One-third of the country's population was hit hard by the devastating floods triggered by climate change last year, he said, adding that the developing countries, including Pakistan, are facing dangers of climate-induced changes due to impacts caused by the developed world.

Highlighting the measures Pakistan has been taking to avert the negative impacts of climate change, Kakar said that short-term, medium-term and long-term frameworks are being prepared to tackle the issue effectively.

Under the country's Ministry of Climate Change, a committee comprising experts has been constituted, which would frame the market for the carbon credits and formulate a comprehensive policy framework for the trade, besides function for further enhancement and improvement, he added. Enditem
