water wastage

Water under the bridge

About Rs25 billion worth of water is wasted every year. That’s what the Wapda chairman reportedly told the Public Accounts Committee earlier this week. That is an understatement. Only about 10 percent of the available 145 million acre feet (maf) of water can be stored in existing reservoirs – global average is around 40 percent. Thanks to insufficient storage capacity and systemic losses, the waste is huge.

On World Water Day, resolve to stop wasting water in Pakistan

The theme for this year’s World Water Day, which is celebrated on March 22, is ‘Why Waste Water?’

It could not be more relevant for an agricultural country like Pakistan.

In this part of the world, we either have too much water in the form of floods, or too little water in the form of droughts. On top of that, climate change and a rapidly expanding population are only making our water problems much worse.
