In the current era, we are fronting different issues such as energy crises and unemployment. For this purpose, noble cane is one of the important sources to overcome these issues by proper utilization of it because it has industrial potential and alternative sources of biofuel and energy. It plays an important role in the economy of Pakistan. It is an important cash crop in Pakistan, which provides a reasonable, source of income and employment for the rural community. It is estimated that 19.8 gallons of ethanol can be produced from one ton of sugarcane. In Pakistan sugarcane production is 72 million tons, it means that 5.2 billion liters of ethanol can be produced and the price of one-liter ethanol is 1.3 dollars which is much higher than the price of sugar. But in Pakistan farmers are facing critical issues regarding low average sugarcane production per hectare due to heavy dependence on traditional methods of sugarcane production. In addition, climate variability is an impediment to food security in the country. However, the majority of the Small landholder sugarcane farmers have been grappling the climate-related challenges, which continue to have devastating effects on their livelihoods. Another major constraint in sugarcane production is the abundance of pests and diseases that hampering the productivity of sugarcane in the country. In addition, Pakistan is facing a challenge to energy crises in recent times. So for this purpose sugarcane will prove a better source to overcome the energy crisis. Therefore, improvement is only possible when combat with sugarcane hampering production threats with proper mitigation strategies. The government should provide awareness to sugarcane farmers to mitigate the challenges regarding sugarcane production. As well as now the time to policymaker and think tank to talk about the alternative source to overcome the crisis in Pakistan. The government should be emphasized to produce ethanol from the raw material instead of focus only on sugar production. Furthermore, this effort will prepare the minds of upcoming pillars of Pakistan (Youth) towards entrepreneurship will ultimately lead to decent levels of incomes and sustainable livelihoods.
