Provision of Safe Drinking Water: A New Challenge for Pakistan

By the end of the year 2020, the population of Karachi is expected to be approximately 23 million and the demand of water would be 1242 MGD (54 GPCD). And the short fall of water will be of 600 MGD (2700 ml/day).

The looming threat of clean drinking water scarcity constitutes one of the biggest challenges to Pakistan’s survival.

Water is the most important and basic necessity for human life. Without water life can’t exist.
