Mr Mohtadullah highlighted the significance of integration of UIB Network. Representing the UIB Secretariat, Abdul Wahid Jasra reported on the progress and hurdles of instigating action points of the previous meeting. He shared the communication with Gilgit Baltistan government regarding ICIMOD’s planning to support the government for a provincial climate change adaptation action plan.
