Pakistan’s Ministry of Planning holds consultation meeting


On October 10-11, the Ministry of Planning, Development and Special Initiatives (MoPDSI), hosted a two-day consultation meeting in Islamabad to bring together government officials working in the finance, planning, agriculture, water, climate change, and disaster risk reduction sectors to discuss and finalize the country-level activities for Pakistan under CARE for South Asia.

The consultation meeting serves as a follow-up event to a series of meetings that were held back in September to discuss the support to be provided by ADPC, RIMES and the World Bank for the project activities, designate country focal points and identify resources needed for project implementation.

The discussions at the consultation meeting were focused on the country’s policies for climate change and development, key priorities to be addressed under the project, and the identification of ongoing programs and initiatives where CARE for South Asia can complement. The work plan for 2021 for Pakistan was also finalized at the end of the meeting.
