I simply reject this irrational report and recommendations. IRSA and PRCWR have developed it ignoring the facts. I have doubt on qualifications of experts or either they are unaware about the marine productivity in estuarine areas. The multidisciplinary third party can only provide the real picture which should ideally have marine and coastal productivity experts.
Water catchment areas need improvement, management and planting to improve potential and attract more rains. How is government responding towards that?
A massive tree planting is required across the country to improve soil moisture, underground levels, environmental conditions, canopy cover to meet the challenges on both environmental and waterfronts. Climate Change is basically haunting Pakistan very aggressively.
Excessive mining of water basically depletes aquifers and absence of canopy expose soils and earth surface which results in evaporation of soil moisture and erosion. Basically, it reduces storing and absorbing power of most of the soil types.
Planting on the massive scale can only resolve this issue. Pakistan needs around 45% tree cover to face climate change & management issues. Areas severely facing drought-like conditions need planting cover to avert the negative impacts of changing weather patterns and climate issues.
Sindh is already under stress, in plain areas, in urban areas and in lower Indus and downstream situation is very bad including Karachi.
I think this should be realized and action plans may be chalked to cope further disastrous emerging situations in Sindh.
The approach adopted by two above Govt bodies is discouraging, disturbing and disastrous for the provinces solely depending on river flows. Climate factors and weather is already dry and harsh and without maintaining river flows the down systems dependent on river flows may collapse immediately.
Coastal productivity is only connected with fresh water supply and eflows.
It's an important issue and power corridors at Karachi are silent that is surprising, it will further affect the resilience of Karachi. In future urban areas will suffer more if river flows are affected.
All political parties based in Sindh should discuss to resolve water issues for agricultural areas, rangelands, urban areas, industrial needs, and downstream productivity otherwise it would result in great loss for both Urban as well as Rural areas. Recent Water commission is a good and timely document for understanding grave situation across Sindh is facing today.

The sand acts as a filter before the water percolates into the ground, and so without the sand, water will just rush down to become flash floods downstream "
“It’s an issue about which most people are not aware, not even the communities living near the riverbed create a ruckus. Therefore there no state policy or planning to control the indiscriminate excavation of the riverbeds by identifying and designating areas from where the miners can quarry the building material. That is causing a colossal ecological problem,” Mirbahar told thethirdpole.net.

Detailing how a community suffers due to increase in extreme weather events, an environment expert at the International Union for Conservation of Nature, Nadeem Mirbahar, says disasters such as floods, heatwaves and cyclones damage vital physical infrastructure such as roads, hospitals and airports as well as the communications system. “Livelihoods are also destroyed as agriculture lands, livestock and businesses are lost,” he explains. “This, in turn, increases people’s vulnerability.” Extreme weather events, Mirbahar adds, also have a negative impact on community
health as diseases spread, nutrition intake lessens and anxiety, fear and stress increase.

What a coincidence-two persons one name at one place. Film star Nadeem Baig (Mirza Nazeer Baig Mughal), and Nadeem Mirbahar. When I told him my father in his youth got inspiration and named me Nadeem but I am not an actor. He enjoyed it and we framed this historical moment. He is very humble, kind and delicate person. May Allah bless him more.

ڇا استادن ڪڏھن احتجاج ڪيو آھي انھن ڳالھين تي يا وري ڪنھن کي لکيو آھي؟ ته انھن کي پڙھائڻ ڏنو ڪونه پيو وڃي! جواب نه.
ھميشه استادن جي خلاف ئي معاشري ۾ بيچيني ڏٺي ويئي آھي.
سچ لڪي نٿو سگھي اھي دور ختم ٿي ويا جڏھن اھو چئي خاموش ڪرايو ويندو ھو ته ٻلي کير پيئي ويئي.
ھاڻي اھو واضع ھئڻ گھرجي ته اسان ھڪ جديد دور ۾ رھي رھيا آھيون جتي ھڪي ننڍڙي سئي لڪائڻ به ڏکيو ٿي ويو آھي.
