The Government of Pakistan has included projects worth Rs 96 billion for the construction of dams and drinking water under the South Balochistan Development Package.
In Balochistan, on the one hand, we have the vast port of Gwadar and seawater resources. But there are also problems like the supply of clean drinking water.
According to a recent Food and Agriculture Organization report, Pakistan is among the 36 countries facing a water crisis.
The Government of Pakistan has given significant attention to infrastructure, power, digital connectivity projects as well as water projects under development packages.
Here’s a review report on the South Balochistan development package:
Minister of State & Chairman BOI Muhammad Azfar Ahsan accompanied the honorable President of Pakistan Dr. Arif Alvi to Gwadar to assess the progress of CPEC & infrastructure development in the region. They also met with concerned officials of Balochistan during their visit.
