Pakistan, officially the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, is a country in South Asia. It is the world's fifth-most populous country, with a population of almost 242 million, and has the world's second-largest Muslim population. Pakistan is the 33rd-largest country by area, spanning 881,913 square kilometres.
Pakistan faces increasing water scarcity driven by worsening climate-related drought and an agriculture industry that is pushing itself to meet the demands of a growing population, say water experts. Less than 20 percent of the water the country’s farmers use for irrigation is captured rainwater, with most coming from ground and surface water.
Asia, home to roughly half the world's population, could be faced with extreme fresh water shortages in the near future. One country already suffering in Pakistan. Various studies show climate change, local waste and mismanagement have led to a rapid depletion of Pakistan's water supply.
Water shortage has become a never-ending issue in one of Pakistan's largest cities Karachi.
