Recycling of water is not done appropriatly which can create water shortages in future.
The water shortages situation is going to be the biggest problem that Pakistan has ever faced. International Monitory Fund (IMF) has placed Pakistan on 'third' in the list of countries having extreme water scarcity. According to experts the per capita availability of freshwater will be reduced to 860 cubic meters by 2025. One of the major factors contributing to this issue is water wastage which is around 45 percent. Other factors include urbanization, overpopulation, and water pollution. Almost 95% of water resources available in the country are consumed by the agriculture sector. If an alternative method would be adopted instead of traditional irrigation methods like drip and sprinkle, we would be able to save around 30 to 70 percent of freshwater. In this way, the problematic situation of water scarcity can be easily managed and can also save Pakistan from food security and economic threat. Since the agriculture sector can not prosper with a shortage of water and Pakistan's agriculture exports may also face severe consequences.
