Water is Life and it is Everyone’s Responsibility
An Existential Threat
Pakistan is facing a severe water crisis. If left unaddressed, it will become an existential threat to Pakistan, as water is directly linked to agriculture, economy, poverty alleviation, food and livelihood security. Therefore, we must act now and with the utmost urgency.
The Panjwani-Hisaar Water Institute (PHWI) will be an institute designed for the 21st century and will address all aspects of water by integrating engineering, social sciences and economic streams into holistic water studies. The Institute will be the first of its kind in the region.
The Institute will offer academic programs and research opportunities that will greatly benefit business, industry, government & society by producing scientists, engineers, sociologists and infrastructure professionals at different levels required to meet the mounting challenges faced by Pakistan.
Total cost of the project is PKR 1.155 billion including PKR 500 million for startup and equipment being provided by the government, PKR 255 million cost of the land provided by NED University and PKR 400 million for construction of the building.
