The Pakistan Economy Watch (PEW) warned on Sunday that Pakistan’s fertile lands will soon turn into desert if no action is taken to tackle the looming water crisis.
Policymakers have not realized the gravity of the situation, says PEW
The water scarcity is destroying the country’s agriculture, industry, and the masses, but the government haven’t done anything about it. The policymakers need to realize the gravity of the situation, PEW further said.
Dr. Murtaza Mughal, President PEW, warned the people that everything is under threat and so are the development initiatives. He said that migration, climate change, bad water management, and Indian conspiracies have all played a major role in fueling the water crisis in Pakistan.
It should be noted that the per capita availability of water has drastically reduced to below 100 cubic meters.
