This research tries to explore one part of the vast areas of climate change. The research examines the experiences of people regarding climate change in northern Pakistan. The northern parts of Pakistan are the first to experience the extreme outcomes of climate change, as every year climate hazards destroy valleys.
This research brings forth the voices of these communities living at the edge, as their voices are little heard and are barely represented in academia. Through an exploratory ethnography, this research tries to vividly describe indigenous knowledge, experiences, and perspectives regarding climate change. By exploring the overall changes in the socio-cultural and economic lifestyle of the inhabitants of the Sonoghur valley of Upper Chitral, this research has put forth a new viewpoint and perspective to study climate change.
Furthermore, the research explores the implications of climate change on the socio-economic and cultural life of the affected community. The research provides an understanding of how to look at communities affected by climate change.
