Pakistan is an IDA country, and as such all new IDA-17 supported investments that come for concept approval from July 1, 2014 will need to be screened for climate and disaster risks. Hence, there is an opportunity for teams to use these screening tools as part of this early stage due diligence. Good to see that the Pakistan recognizes the challenge posed by climate change, and that it includes a provision for some action on this front, including analytical work.
