A project by Dr. Javed Iqbal (HoD IGIS NUST) & Mr. Muhammad Ahsan Mahboob (Lecturer IGIS)

Importance of Project:

Pakistan’s dependency on the water sector and its effects on economic growth of the country, leads to a precise water planning and usage. India’s ability to exercise the option of manipulating with the waters of Pakistan is of key importance, as the relations between the two countries have never been very cordial. India’s intrusions on the western rivers, namely Indus and Jhelum and manipulation of flows in Eastern Rivers need to be studied carefully to mitigate its effects on Pakistan’s water demands and supply as well as to address environmental concerns arising due to the situationThis research work will help the ​planning and decision making institutions of country to understand the problems and their solution​

Role OF IGIS: 

Institute of Geographical information System owns the responsibility​ of performing complete research, starting from data collection to final maps and conclusions.
