Environmental Change and Security Program

For nearly 30 years, the Aga Khan Rural Support Program of Pakistan (AKRSP) has helped improve the lives of more than 1.3 million Pakistanis living in the remote northern regions of Gilgit-Baltistan and Chitral through its community-based approach to development. This participatory method has enabled AKRSP and its beneficiaries to achieve major successes in raising rural incomes; mobilizing savings; developing natural resources in sustainable, adaptive ways; and building the capacity of civil society and government institutions. Abdul Malik, general manager of AKRSP, will discuss his organization and the role of Pakistani civil society in Pakistan’s future social and economic growth.
