Sindh province is facing a severe water shortage to meet its agricultural need and drinking water crisis and it is the responsibility of all of us to preserve our water resources to stop wastage of water, said Sindh Minister for Irrigation Jam Khan Shoro.

The minister stated this in a message on the eve of the World Water Day. He said that water is one of the basic human necessities for survival on the earth and every year World Water Day is observed on March 22 to educate the masses about the importance of water and water scarcity.

He said that the purpose of observing World Water Day each year is to highlight the importance of water and to prevent its wastage. Shoro said that Pakistan is expected to face a severe water crisis in the future due to climate change and a rapidly growing population.

On the occasion, Managing Director Karachi Water and Sewerage Board (KWSB) said that citizens should use water sparingly considering the availability of water for less than the demand. He said that despite the availability of water about 56% less than the demand of the city, water boards keep supplying water to far end areas of the city.
