The King’s Birthday Party events, which double as a National Day for the UK, had an environment and climate theme, to reflect both the King’s interest in this area and the high priority given to this work by the UK.

Hosted in the garden of ‘Acton House’ at the Deputy High Commission Karachi, Friday’s ‘village’ styled event was attended by British High Commissioner, Jane Marriott OBE CMG, and the visiting British Army’s Chief of the General Staff, General Patrick Sanders KCB, CBE, DSO, ADC Gen. In attendance as Chief Guest was the Caretaker Minister for Law, Religious Affairs and Human Rights, Omer Soomro. Also present were representatives from the Karachi Relief Trust with whom the Deputy British High Commission Karachi collaborate to support the rehabilitation of flood-affected communities in Sindh.

With COP28 set to take place on the 30th November in the UAE, these national celebrations were used to open environment and climate related conversations ranging from how to build on Pakistan’s negotiating success on a Loss and Damage Fund at COP27. To how Pakistan can safeguard its marine economy via the Commonwealth’s Blue Charter.
