Policy Brief 09/01/2024
Pakistan, a developing economy with rapid population growth, faces considerable
h urdles in effectively managing its depleting resources, controlling pollution, and
mitigating the impacts of climate change. Waste management poses substantial
challenges in Pakistan, marked by insufficient infrastructure and inefficient systems
that contr ibute to pervasive pollution and environmental degradation. The linear
economic model is leading a country like Pakistan towards resource inefficiency,
wastage maximi s ation and a weak recycling system.
