Water shortage worse than expected: Sources

During the Kharif season, which began on April 1 with the sowing of important crops such as cotton, sugarcane, rice, and maize, Pakistan is experiencing a severe water scarcity of 38% for irrigation reasons.

On Thursday, the Indus River System Authority (IRSA), which regulates and monitors the allocation of Indus River water sources among the four federating units, presented a presentation before the National Assembly’s Standing Committee on Water Resources. According to the government, the water shortfall has worsened from the previously forecasted 22% deficiency.
