Najam on Climate Change and Endangered Species


Adil Najam, Dean of the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, was interviewed on Pakistan’s Capital TV  on how climate change directly affects endangered species such as the snow leopard and the Indus River blind dolphin, both of which are indigenous to Pakistan.

Najam was interviewed for a May 17, 2016 segment on Capital Today entitled “Snow Leopard and Indus Dolphin in Danger.” He suggested that climate change has now drastically threatened the habitats of these key species and also of humans. However, he pointed out that there was still time to save these species, especially the Indus River blind dolphin which is also threatened by loss of habitat due to irrigation structures.
