- Food security is one of the central themes of the National Security Policy of Pakistan (NSP) 2022-2026. The provision of the most fundamental essentials for life, such as food, is mandated for all inhabitants of Pakistan by the Constitution of Pakistan, specifically Article 38 (d).
- The transformation of agriculture and the adoption of “climate-smart” techniques are two approaches that can be taken simultaneously to solve the issues of food security and climate change.
- To achieve the transformations necessary for Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) and meet the stated objective in the NSP, Pakistan needs an integrated strategy. This strategy must be responsive to particular local conditions, diversify food sources, and strengthen the resilience of farmers’ livelihoods.
- The CSA and policies governing the CSA need to contribute to larger economic growth, aim for reducing poverty, and achieve objectives for sustainable development in Pakistan. They should also foster an atmosphere conducive to the adoption of CSA by both the public and commercial sectors. The CSA necessitates coordination between relevant entities operating within a variety of industries at both the central and local levels.
