Requesting support for: - DRYLANDS RESTORATION IN PAKISTAN

I teach investments at the Lahore School of Economics and am also the founder of Combating Poverty and Climate Change Foundation (CPCCF), the Accredited Hub in Pakistan of the Savory Institute of USA, one of 11 finalists for the $ 25 million Virgin Earth Prize for whoever develops a safe, credible method on a meaningful scale to remove carbon from the atmosphere in the battle against climate change.

In Pakistan, we at CPCCF are focused on converting Drylands, which constitute more than 75% of Pakistan’s land area, into Forests-cum-Grazing Pastures. If this task is performed with the natural zeal and vigour of the small farmers in Pakistan, then Pakistan will eliminate poverty and become a global hero in the fight against climate change by transferring huge quantities of carbon from the atmosphere into the soil raising soil fertility and its water holding capacity. This is the kind of transformation we in Pakistan want and need after more than 50 years of drift that has destroyed our national values and isolated us in the world.

Send me your email address for further information about CPCCF.
