Balochistan, Climate Change, CPEC


The problem of climate change is one of the most defining issues of our time. Both developed and underdeveloped states of the world are equally under its menace. In the last two decades, some of the first-world countries, like China, have taken tremendous steps to minimize their effects on their region. Pakistan, in the year 2022, witnessed an unprecedented flood owing to a massive rainfall that hit its biggest province, Balochistan. Notwithstanding, Pakistan undoubtedly, at this stage of economic stagnation, needs foreign support to overcome such disasters. A qualitative based approach was used to analyse the literature based on the climate change in the perspective of Pakistan and China. For the analysis of the extracted data conceptual analysis was used. The platform of CPEC can be practically utilized by employing Chinese models and measures in Pakistan's most neglected and affected province, Balochistan. The Chinese model of dams in Balochistan will be highly beneficial and helpful not only for flood dismantlement but also for the storage of adequate water in case of any massive drought. This paper sheds light on the theme of how Pakistan can learn from the Chinese model to address the problem of climate change in its most neglected region, Balochistan.
