The conference featured distinguished consultants, Asad Mahmood, and award-winning Dr. Naveed Arshad, who not only delivered impactful policy briefs but also made firm demands from the government to mobilize the private sector investment in the mitigation of climate change, promote international cooperation on climate change, consider carbon markets as a platform for countries to work together to reduce emissions on a global scale and should actively engage in regional cooperation and knowledge sharing on carbon markets, learning from the experiences of other countries and exploring opportunities for joint initiatives.
