Dire need to recycle waste water in Pakistan

KARACHI:
In a country like Pakistan where millions are deprived of the basic necessity of water, there is a dire need for adopting the culture of conservation and recycling of waste water, said International Union for Conservation of Nature country representative Mahmood A Cheema.

He said this at a seminar, titled ‘Why Waste Your Wastewater’, organised by Barrett Hodgson University (BHU) on Wednesday. The event was held at the university’s Salim Habib campus on the occasion of World Water Day, which is observed across the globe on March 22.

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.
