Internationally, global community has realized the gravity of the issue and collectively international community has started to work together through treaties, protocols and policies, which have developed few steps and mechanisms for dealing with the monster of climate change. The research is qualitative and descriptive in nature. Pakistan has also set up climate change policy at national level, with a dedicated ministry in this regard too. There have been many initiatives during the past decade or so, which are in right direction, yet a lot has to be done. This paper provides a jurisprudential analysis of different aspects of climate change and also recommends adopting proactive, scientific and sustainable climate policy emphasizing on responsible consumption, efficient usage of energy and water resources.
