German Grant worth 6 Mio Euros for establishing Pakistan Glacial Monitoring Network
Pakistan is one of the most vulnerable countries to vagaries of climate change, experiencing recurring floods. Germany through the KfW Development Bank has provided a grant of 6 Mio EUR to monitor over 5 000 melting glaciers in the northern parts of Pakistan which contribute about 80 per cent of river flow. The grant will be provided to the Water & Power Development Authority (WAPDA) for the Project “Glacial Monitoring for Energy and Water Security in Pakistan” for telemetric equipment in the lower stretches of the glaciated areas.
Secretary Economic Affairs Division, Mr. Tariq Bajwa, Member Water WAPDA Mr. Shoeib Iqbal and KfW Country Director Mr. Wolfgang Moellers signed the Grant Financing Agreement today, in the presence of First Secretary Sebastian Ernst from the German Embassy and WAPDA. Speaking on the occasion, both EAD and WAPDA appreciated the long term development partnership with KfW. Mr. Moellers said that "being the custodian of the largest number of glaciers outside the arctic, Pakistan can surely assume global leadership in addressing a critical aspect of Climate Change through this Project."
The Solar power equipment will transmit glacial melt data for processing in Lahore. The data will be used to regulate hydropower generation, dam protection, and other reservoir management operations. The Federal Flood Commission, the Flood Forecasting Division of the Pakistan Meteorological Department and the Indus River Systems Authority will benefit from this information. Two state-of-the-art energy efficient buildings will be constructed in Lahore and Skardu for housing the staff and the sophisticated equipment.

Successful Pakistan Days held at the German Chamber of Commerce and the Munich Chamber of Commerce on 30. and 31.10.2013
Die Pakistan Days am 30.10.2013 in Berlin und am 31.10.2013 in München waren ein wichtiger Meilenstein in der Deutsch-Pakistanischen Beziehung. Organisiert wurden den beiden Veranstaltungen vom Pakistan German Business Forum (PGBF) in Karachi, dem Deutschen Industrie und Handelkammertag (DIHK) in Berlin und der IHK München. Aus Pakistan reiste eine hochrangige Delegation an. Von pakistanischer Seite wurde die Delegation vom Chief Minister of Punjab, Herrn Shabaz Sharif und von deutscher Seite von Botschafter Dr. Cyrill Nunn (Islamabad) und Genral Konsul Dr. Tilo Klinner (Karachi) angeführt.
In seiner Eröffnungsrede unterstrich Außenminister Guido Westerwelle die Bedeutung der Deutsch-Pakistanischen Beziehung. Er selbst habe Pakistan mehrmals besucht und konnte, da bei einer seiner Reisen wetterbedingt eine Landung in der Hauptstadt Islamabad nicht möglich war, auf eine Überlandfahrt von Lahore nach Islamabad neue Eindrücke gewinnen und Pakistan so auf eine ganz besondere Weise kennen lernen.
Der Chief Minister von Punjab Herr Shabaz Sharif verblüffte die Teilnehmer durch seine überwiegend auf deutsch gehaltenen Eröffnungsrede. Er betonte, dass für Pakistan nicht "Aid" (Hilfe), sondern "Trade" (Handel) mit Deutschland im Vordergrund stehe. Durch Handel könnten Arbeitsplätze geschaffen werden, die es wiederum ermöglichten in Bildung zu investieren. Arbeit und Bildung sei ein wichtiger Hebel, um den Taliban zu begegnen und gerade der jungen Bevölkerung Pakistans Alternativen aufzuzeigen.
Am Abend lud der Botschfter Pakistans H.E. Abdul Basit die Teilnehmer des Berliner Pakistan Day zum Dinner ein. Hier standen die Deutsch-Pakistanischen-Beziehungen weiterhin im Mittelpunkt. Dies kam sogar musikalische zum Ausdruck, denn der pakistanische Tabla-Spieler Asha Khan und der deutsche Sitar-Spieler Matyas Wollter begeisterten die Gäste mit ihrer Musik.
Am 31. Oktober reiste die Delegation zum zweiten Pakistan Day zur IHK nach München weiter.
