Climate change is not a problem that one country can solve alone but requires collective efforts from a strong coalition of partners. The United States and Pakistan have a long history of working together to advance economic growth and build a brighter future for Pakistan. The U.S.-Pakistan “Green Alliance” framework works to advance cooperation in agriculture, clean energy, and water. The United States is committed to support Pakistan as it strengthens climate resilience, pursues energy transformation, and fosters inclusive economic growth.
