Authors: Dr. Rabia Akhtar, Director, CSSPR, Dr. Asif Amin, Research Fellow, CSSPR, and Muhammad Ahsan, Research Associate, CSSPR
Pakistan is currently confronted with a wide array of challenges stemming from climate change, encompassing environmental degradation, natural calamities, and human displacement. The ramifications of climate change have now posed an enduring security threat, firmly entrenched within Pakistan’s traditional security landscape, further intensifying the preexisting security predicaments such as poverty, terrorism, and international migration. In order to mitigate these risks effectively, the utilization of design communication proves to be an invaluable and influential instrument, serving to alleviate the climate change hazards faced not only by Pakistan but also by other nations susceptible to similar vulnerabilities. By harnessing inventive design strategies coupled with cutting-edge technologies, communication design exhibits the potential to disseminate vital information, enhance public awareness, and facilitate education among individuals adversely affected by the perils of climate change.
