Hisaar Foundation

According to global data, Pakistan is already a water-deficit country. Given the impacts of global warming, increasing population, and the impending shortages of sweet water, Pakistan has already had early warnings of drought, food problems and livelihood erosion. The erratic cycles of drought and floods are already upon us. 20 million people were affected by the floods in 2010. Pakistan’s population is set to reach 265.7 million by the year 2030. Unless low cost methods are found to desalinate seawater, this means progressively lower per capita availability of sweet water for the country.
