Pakistan has improved in building resilience to water-related disasters: ADB

Asian Development Bank (ADB) says water security in Asia and Pacific has progressed overall in the past five years.

This has been stated in a new edition of the Asian Water Development Outlook 2016 released by ADB Vice-President for Knowledge Management and Sustainable Development Bambang Susantono in Stockholm, Sweden on Tuesday.

According to the report, there are still major challenges to address such as overexploited ground water, demand from rising populations, and climate variability.
