About the Event
Hisaar Foundation, in collaboration with the Centre for Water Informatics and Technology at LUMS, is pleased to invite you to the launch of the first report of Think Tank on Rational Use of Water. This report includes recommendations for Pakistan’s national water policy framework developed by the members of the Think Tank on Rational Use of Water, a recently established strategic initiative of the Hisaar Foundation. This policy framework is a culmination of the many months of deliberations of the Think Tank members and stakeholder consultations in various cities of Pakistan with representatives of the government, business communities, international agencies, corporate sector, women’s groups, and civil society organisations.
This is a first instance that alternative recommendations to Pakistan’s national water policy framework are being proposed by an independent body and also a first time that a report on estimation of the size of water economy of Pakistan is being published. This report contains the Think Tank’s position on two other critical areas of water challenges facing Pakistan; a position paper on the Water Economy of Pakistan and a research report on early warning strategies for Drought Management.
