Project Description

The technical assistance (TA) will "operate for 18 months and will develop a plan to revitalize and build resilience in the Ravi River Basin in the province of Punjab, Pakistan. The river basin is being heavily polluted with urban, industrial, and agricultural waste, creating major human health, food, and water safety risks. These risks will continue to worsen without urgent action by the government and society. The TA will support activities to assess the pollution problem, identify and close institutional gaps, raise awareness, and develop a long-term plan to revitalize and build resilience in the basin, with detailed investment recommendations."
