Let's Talk Development by Consortium for Development Policy Research

Episode notes

Pakistan’s water supply has become a crucial resource challenge in recent years, made worse by the country’s enduring infrastructure and governance problems. The prospect of a major water crisis in Pakistan offers a stark reminder of the increasing vulnerability of the country to global climate change. The destructive floods that submerged a third of the country last year demonstrate this. In this episode, Dr. Fazilda Nabeel and Dr. Erum Sattar draw attention to important issues in the climate change-water security space in Pakistan.
