The World Bank report found that 8 out of 10 people in Pakistan are worried about climate change. This concern is higher among women and educated people. The report also stated that climate change has already affected Pakistan with changes in weather patterns and destructive floods. It is projected that by 2050, Pakistan’s GDP could decrease by 18-20% due to climate-related events, environmental damage, and air pollution. The report also mentioned that women are more concerned about climate change and its impact on children, possibly because they are primary caregivers. Similarly, educated individuals are more concerned about the causes and consequences of climate change. The report highlighted the importance of education in shaping attitudes towards climate change. It also mentioned that experiences of income shocks, such as from the Covid-19 pandemic or floods, can increase people’s concern about climate change. However, while many people are worried about the effects of climate change, it may not be a top priority for them. Overall, the report emphasized the need for education and knowledge about climate change to create a more sustainable future for all.
