To address Pakistan’s water challenges we have to produce the requisite science and research for nurturing the next generation of water professionals – young women and men who can serve water sectors including agriculture, industry, cities, municipalities, domestic use, water for nature and cultural uses. We need to change the way people think about water, make policies on water, build water infrastructure, act around water and take decisions regarding water.

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 Solution

The Panjwani-Hisaar Water Institute (PHWI) is an institute designed for the 21st century that addresses all aspects of water by integrating engineering, social sciences and economic streams into holistic water studies. The Institute is the first of its kind in the region.

The Programs

The Institute offers academic programs and research opportunities that greatly benefit business, industry, government and society by producing scientists, engineers, sociologists and infrastructure professionals at different levels required to meet the mounting challenges faced by Pakistan.
