A looming threat: Pakistan running dry

20 0 0

Water is a scarce resource in Pakistan and for that, Pakistan was declared a water stress country in 2005. Over 90 % of our water is being used in agriculture, out of which 50% get wasted due to old irrigation practices. Remaining 10% is used for civic and industrial purposes. It is one of the major challenges we are facing at the moment.

The amount of fresh water is decreasing and the polluted water is increasing making water not suitable for human or animal consumption. This challenge is compounded when we throw chemical waste into our creeks, rivers, and seas which possess a threat to marine life as well.

This all can be done by ‘realizing’ how important water is and how fast Pakistan is moving toward the acute water shortage.

Not just that water issues like its availability, quality, Unsustainable usage, pollution, and improper water allocations have furthered the problem. Pakistan........
