Recharge Pakistan: Building Pakistan’s resilience to climate change through Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) and Green Infrastructure for integrated flood risk management

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Pakistan’s average temperature variations will be approximately 1°C higher than the global average changes by 2100. As a result, and combined with other climate hazards, the country expects to see major shifts in rainfall patterns, and an increased frequency and severity of extreme weather events such as floods, droughts, heatwaves, and cyclones. Pakistan requires immediate assistance to adapt to climate change, as evidenced by the 33 million people affected by devasting floods in 2023.

The primary objective of the Recharge Pakistan initiative is to transform the country’s approach to flood and water resource management in local watershed sites in the Indus Basin river system. This will be accomplished by implementing ecosystems-based adaptation (EbA) and green infrastructure interventions, as well as enhancing community-based natural resource management. These activities will address long-term drought and flood resilience, while establishing a paradigm shift for future EbA initiatives in Pakistan.
