Pakistan faces climate change with nuclear energy

Pakistan announced that it will seek to increase its production of electric power to 40 GW in its nuclear power plants by 2050 to create a “clean and profitable alternative to fossil fuel” in the face of climate change .

The Pakistani government highlighted its initiative to foster cooperation with other international actors in the nuclear field to meet “the legitimate social and economic development needs of its people.”

The Asian nation expressed its intention to be included in the multilateral mechanisms of export control. In 2016 it presented its request to join the Nuclear Suppliers Group in which it would seek a treatment without discrimination for the countries that did not sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. .

The Nuclear Suppliers Group is made up of 48 countries that produce nuclear materials, equipment and technologies for reactors.
