World Water Day is being celebrated all over the world including Pakistan.
The purpose of this day is to highlight water conservation and the construction of water reservoirs on the planet, to create awareness about the usefulness of water and prevent it from being wasted.
Clean water is a basic human right and every possible benefit should be taken from it so that this facility can be provided to the poorest of the poor. It is very important to provide clean drinking water to every person along with education. That is why World Water Day is celebrated on March 22 every year.
Our very existence depends on water. Yet, this valuable resource is becoming increasingly scarce.
– United Nations (@UN) March 22, 2021
Every year on March 22, those who are still waiting for proper access to clean drinking water and sanitation are remembered.
Thousands of children around the world are dying due to lack of clean water.
In Pakistan, the current government is building more than eight projects in the water sector for valuable water resources.
These projects include Diamer Basha Dam, Mohmand Dam, Karam Tangi Dam, Nai Gaj Dam, Sindh Barrage, Dasu Hydropower Project, Tarbela 5th Extension and Kayal Khawar Hydropower Project.
