Policy Discourse Analysis-Pakistan: Supporting climate resilience in policy making

Policy Discourse Analyses (PDAs) draw on existing
evidence and engage key stakeholders in a dialogue to
review different policy arenas. IIED is undertaking case
studies of countries participating in the PDAs and this
report focuses on Pakistan, where a PDA was carried out
to assess the extent to which climate resilience is factored
into current policies and programmes. The report reviews
recent developments in key policy areas relating to
climate resilience, as well as the main discourses, policy
objectives and stakeholders in key thematic areas to
establish how climate risk management is being
addressed. The report also identifies alternative
discourses and evidence gaps to present opportunities
and entry points for climate resilient development.

South Asia as a region has witnessed favourable economic growth and is gearing up to capitalise on opportunities provided by urbanisation, economic diversification and a young population. At the same time the region is also home to the world's largest population of the poor and is extremely vulnerable to adverse impacts of climate change.
