                         Serious environmental problems are inherent in the country which are great ecological concern in terms of its sustainable economic future these includes soil erosion, deforestation, shortage of water, pesticide misuse, waste are generating, and natural disasters. Also some are the seasonal impacts like  fog, flood, dust storm, drought,  moisture and cyclonic storms in urban sea.
                        Unavailability of water is the man issue according to the report of International monetary fund  (IMF) Pakistan rank 3rd in the list of countries facing water shortage United Nation Development Program (UNDP) and Pakistan Council of Researach in Water Resources (PCRWR) indicate Pakistan will reach absolute scarcity by 2025. In May 2015, Karachi experienced the deadly heat wave Pakistan has seen over 50 year at least 1200 people during hot weather. Other main issue of environmental problem is deforestation according to recent study in between 1990 and 2005 Pakistan lost 24.7% of its forest cover. Main reasons of deforestation are energy crises urbanization and domestic use. Waste disposal also main environmental issue our factories dispose thousand of tones waste in river on daily basis this is main cause of indus river is 2nd polluted river in the world.
                      Main finding of environmental causes through this report is that lack of financial resources,  technical knowledge gap, also main reason is the increasing numbers of population with the per capita income. also uses of personal vehicles  causing the smoke in major cities  such as Lahore, Karachi vehicles smoke causing the cancer and other serious health problems. Pakistan government launched clean green program for increase forest cover. Government and the people of Pakistan needs to cooperate each other and international community also need to engaged because climate change does not differentiate between borders, and international community is also aware of climate change effects on Pakistan.

    Hello Fayaz

    I could see the environmental situation of Pakistan in detail. For the solution of all those environmental issues, I agree with the last part of your report. There should be cooperation between the government and Pakistan people. People's raised awareness about those issues combined with the effective environmental policies will eventually make Pakistan green, and lead the society to sustainable development.

    Thank you for the great report!

    Hey Fayaz!
    This is your mentor Lisa.

    I think you have chosen a very insightful book!
    I believe that Pakistan is not the only country suffering from a lack of technological resources and financial ones most of the developing nations are having the same problem in solving environmental issues. I feel like this is the point where the international community should step in for more cooperation and technological/financial aids! Since environmental problems are something that all of us share responsibilities of, we should not consider a country's environmental issues as that country's own problem but rather something that we should all care about and aim to resolve!!

    Great book and great article!
    Keep up your work:)
