Climate change to reduce livestock by 30pc


Adverse effects of climate change are likely to reduce livestock production by 20 to 30 percent in the coming years due to rising temperatures, leading to crises in meat, milk and poultry supplies – pushing prices beyond reach of the average Pakistani. ‘Currently, Pakistan ranks seventh in the 10 countries that are most affected by climate change globally’, said Deputy Director Media of Ministry of Climate Change Mohammad Saleem.
He said the negative effects of climate change continue to undermine socio-economic development in all of the countries and reverse the gains made over decades, pushing people back to poverty, hunger and disease.—APP
