BATHINDA (BATHINDA) — In a virtual session held recently, the South Asia Peace Action Network (SAPAN) called for coordinated efforts to combat the South Asian climate crisis.Scholarly environmentalists and climate campaigners from around South Asia voiced their opinions on how individual efforts are essential to face and fight this crisis, which is taking a toll on the planet.Though it is being noted in European Unions that activism against their governments and world powers is well-documented, it is also acknowledged that the climate crisis is quickly transforming into a climate crisis that requires urgent and effective solutions to combat it, it is also being felt in South Asia.It was stressed that collectively, it was possible to reach out to the governments to take concrete measures to solve the climate crisis.We, the participants in this discussion on tackling the climate crisis in South Asia, who account for a quarter of humanity, were saddened by the governments in India and Pakistan that they did not collaborate to give a united position at COP-26 in Glasgow.Countries that have been the most polluting countries must place the blame on them for reducing emissions.The development trajectories of billions of people who want to be out of poverty and poverty must not be in contradiction to their aspirations.We encourage governments to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels as a source of economic development and wealth creation. We will continue to urge our governments to keep channels of communication and collaboration open between the South Asian countries open to find solutions to climate change problems.We show our love for the South Asian peoples who are fighting the climate crisis together.We are waiting for similar cooperative actions from the governments, eliminating their divisive practices.South Asian countries must take on a joint responsibility to preserve, promote, and scale the indigenous knowledge of our communities, which can be the basis for effective responses to climate change's impacts. We consider regional concerns such as glacial melt, sea level rise, rising heat relative to urban resilience, air quality, and water resource management.Encourage our nations to see these issues as such and take a regional approach to them.Climate migrants, indigenous people groups, and other vulnerable groups must be considered to have cross-border cooperation on species preservation, natural resource protection, and climate justice.We will continue to support and encourage advocacy and activism with decision-makers to ensure that cooperative protocols that have been created are not rolled back. The South Asian region's human capital has the ability to lead us toward climate sanity.We encourage our governments to cooperate in this regard.The world needs to have influence.
