Alliance for Climate Justice and Clean Energy (ACJCE) is a civil society network endeavoring for a transition in Pakistan’s energy sector. Its work is aimed at diverting policies away from dirty fossil-fuel-based production of energy and advocating the adoption of clean and renewable sources of energy which are socially compatible, economically affordable and environmentally sustainable. In its efforts to promote climate justice and clean energy, ACJCE amplifies the voices of local communities whose rights get violated because of power sector projects. It also carries out research on social, economic and environmental impacts of energy sector policies, creates public awareness through news media about the gaps between policy and practices in the energy sector in media and lobbies with elected representatives and policy-makers to make a transition towards zero carbon emissions possible. The ACJCE includes five organisations namely, Policy Research Institute For Equitable Development (PRIED), Pakistan Fisherfolk Forum (PFF), Alternative Law Collective (ALC), Indus Consortium (IC) and The Knowledge Forum (TKF).Read More
