Prime Minister Imran Khan has invited Bill Gates to work together to save the world from the dangers of climate change, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Sunday.

In a letter written to Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that Pakistan is on the front lines of the climate challenge and is amongst the top countries “continuously impacted” by climate change over past two decades but at the same time it is a very low contributor to the issue, adding less than one percent of the global greenhouse gas emissions.

The prime minister said that a result-oriented dialogue and collaboration between expert teams of both sides can mutually assist to advance the shared vision. This could include developing partnerships towards access and deployment of the best available technologies for clean energy and electric vehicles as well as cooperating towards climate-resilient agriculture, he added.

Imran Khan also paid tribute to Bill Gates for writing a book on the climate change dangers.
