Pakistan — which has come under the spotlight in the climate conversation after experiencing devastating floods this past year — is seeking a 60% renewable mix by 2030, up from 30% today. "A good chunk of our electric production will be either through solar or through hydro," said Asif Hyder Shah, secretary of the country's Ministry of Climate Change, in a conversation at COP27. The country is extra motivated due to the energy crisis: At the outset of the Russia-Ukraine war, Pakistan LNG cargoes were "defaulting" and the situation "tripled the local energy prices," Shah said. Pakistan was also a vocal advocate of the loss and damage fund that was ultimately agreed in the final COP27 deal.
