Alternate Solutions Institute
The Alternate Solutions Institute describes itself as the “first free market think tank of Pakistan,” and as a registered, non-profit, “non-political, non-governmental, educational and research organization.” It was established in April, 2003 in Lahore, Pakistan. 
The group states that its goal is “changing the climate of opinion in Pakistan so that there is an improved understanding of the benefits of limited government, rule of law, protection of property rights, market economy, individual freedom and private initiative.” Its official mission is to “promote a limited responsible government in Pakistan under the rule of law protecting life, liberty, and property of all of its individual citizens without any discrimination.” , 
The Alternate Solutions Institute has been a regular sponsor of the Heartland Institute's International Conference on Climate Change, an event that attracts climate change skeptics from across the country.
Stance on Climate Change
“The earth's climate has always been susceptible to changes caused by natural factors over which human beings have no control. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change uses its monopoly power in the dissemination of its own politically edited version of climate science to advance the hypothesis that climate change is caused by fossil-fuel use.” 
The Alternate Solutions Institute does not publicly list their funding information.
In 2008, the Atlas Economic Research Foundation, a group SourceWatch describes as the “Johnny Appleseed” of anti-regulation groups, gave the Alternate Solutions Institute a $100,000 grant that would be distributed over three years. The grant was part of the Atlas foundation's Dorian and Anthony Fisher Venture grants program. ,

In advance of the release of a report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the Alternate Solutions Institute was one of a number of organizations to form a “global coalition” entitled the Civil Society Coalition on Climate Change. The goal of the coalition was to challenge the IPCC report. According to an Alternate Solutions Institute release, “The CSCCC aims at challenging the unjustified alarmism and promote rational debate.”
