Das Lahore High Court in Pakistan hat einem Bauern Recht gegeben, der die Regierung wegen mangelnden Klimaschutzes verklagt hatte. Das berichtet das Online-Portal Responding to Climate Change. In seinem Urteil vom 14. September 2015 verfügte Richter Syed Mansoor Ali Shah die Berufung eines Klimaschutzkomitees, das für die Umsetzung des Klimaschutzgesetzes sorgen soll. Das Gremium muss sich am 1. Oktober 2015 treffen und bis Dezember einen fertigen "Fahrplan" vorweisen. Geklagt hatte der Bauer Ashgar Legarit. Er berief sich auf die Sorgepflicht des Staates für seine Bürger. Er lebe von der Landwirtschaft, die Folgen des Klimawandels würden ihm die Lebensgrundlage nehmen, argumentierte Legarit.

Pakistan’s federal government must start implementing its climate change plans a judge at Lahore High Court said on 14 September 2014, ruling on a legal challenge brought by a farmer. In his judgement Judge Syed Mansoor Ali Shah ordered the establishment of a national Climate Change Commission (with named members) with a clear remit to ensure effective implementation, along with a number of other practical institutional measures. The case against the Pakistani government had been brought to Lahore High Court’s Green Bench by an individual petitioner, Asghar Leghari. Using public interest litigation (PIL), Leghari who relies on agriculture for a living, charged the government and relevant authorities with failing him as a citizen. He accused them of failing to develop the required resilience to climate change as required under the government’s own framework for implementation of National Climate Change Policy 2013. The Commission is now due to meet on 1 October 2015 and tasked with coming up with implementation targets by December.
