The visit is taking place at the invitation of President William Samoei Ruto of Kenya. Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar will articulate Pakistan’s perspective on the global climate crisis in the summit and highlight our national efforts to rebuild in a climate-resilient manner after last year’s devastating floods.

Prime Minister’s key messages in Nairobi would include the need for enhanced climate cooperation at all levels to confront the common challenge of Climate Change in an effective manner.
