This year, the United Kingdom will contribute £7 million in grant funding and technical assistance to help Pakistan meet its climate change goals.
According to a news release issued by the British High Commission on Saturday, the UK and Pakistan are already cooperating on climate change.
The United Kingdom started a programme in Lahore earlier this year to encourage cleaner brick manufacturing processes, which will help improve air quality, reduce smog, and combat climate change.
The UK will finance a focused training programme on “Zig Zag” technology for the brick sector to replace coal and cut emissions as part of the brick kiln programme launched earlier this year.
The Punjab government, the Pakistan Brick Kiln Owners Association, and the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development will collaborate on this project.
