PESHAWAR (Khyber Mail): WaterAid Pakistan (WAP) and the Center for Water and Climate (CWC) at the Institute of Management Sciences (IMSciences) have formalized a strategic partnership aimed at addressing pressing issues in Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH), with a particular focus on climate resilience.
This collaborative effort will involve conducting extensive research on Pakistan’s WASH infrastructure to pinpoint areas in need of enhancement and to offer evidence-based recommendations. A strong emphasis will be placed on the development of climate-resilient WASH solutions to tackle challenges linked to climate change.
Key initiatives encompass the creation of comprehensive water security plans, the empowerment of recent graduates, with a focus on fostering female professionals, and the introduction of a groundbreaking Zero Liquid Discharge initiative, which includes rainwater harvesting, groundwater recharge, and wastewater treatment facilities—the first of its kind in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP). Furthermore, this partnership will engage students in various environmental initiatives and actively pursue grants for WASH-related projects to ensure effective resource utilization.
This collaboration marks a significant stride towards achieving sustainable water solutions in Pakistan.
