Extraordinary increase in the formation of lakes due to melting of glaciers in Pakistan

ISLAMABAD: Rising temperatures in Gilgit-Baltistan and northern areas have led to an unprecedented increase in glacier-based lakes over the past three years.

Malik Amin Aslam, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for Climate Change, has said that due to global warming, the number of glacier-forming lakes in Gilgit-Baltistan has increased five times.

Addressing an international seminar on the occasion of Mountaineering, Tourism and International Mountain Day, Malik Amin Aslam said that the average temperature in Pakistan has doubled as compared to the rest of the world. This is due to the natural features and geology of the area and ‘disasters in the north due to low-lying conditions spread across the country,’ he said.

According to Malik Amin, data has been collected about glaciers melting and flooding under the GLOF-II project, which will help in proper planning and protection against natural disasters.

He said that due to GLOF, the country is facing environmental hazards as 70 percent of the infrastructure coming in their way is severely damaged due to these severe climatic disasters.

According to Malik Amin Aslam, natural and natural solutions can reduce the rising temperature. By expanding the national park at an altitude of 14,000 feet above sea level, creating a corridor of communication between all the parks, a natural solution to this problem is possible.

The world has appreciated Pakistan’s role in the Conference of the Parties or COP 26 conference and Pakistan has informed the world about the devastation and economic burden of phenomena like GLOF.

On the occasion, UNDP Chief Newt Osby said that UNDP Pakistan has conducted a scientific study of glaciers and their melting in selected districts of Gilgit-Baltistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. In this regard, early warning, monitoring and agricultural assistive technology and sensors are being installed.
