Unavailability of Clean Drinking Water

Amid the rising population and climate change, the availability of fresh water is becoming worrisome in Pakistan, which may face absolute water scarcity by 2040.

Currently unavailability of safe drinking water deprives almost two-thirds of over 200 million Pakistanis of potable water and leads to the highest number of deaths in the country. A fundamental and definitive solution to this problem requires long-term solutions. But in the short term, effective and cost-effective solutions are needed.

The Challenge: cost-effective solutions for local drinking water supply.
