Vision 2047: Fresh drikaing water is running out

Fresh Water is a fast shrinking resource in this world. Even though 67% of the world is full of water but that water is not drinkable for most life on earth. Growing human population along with industrialization of the world is reducing the supply of fresh drinking water. In developing countries such as India and Pakistan, consumption of water that is not properly filtered and treated results in epidemics of water borne diseases. In case of Pakistani urban centers, especially in Karachi , fresh water even when supplied relatively clean gets contaminated along the way, often mixing with sewage water. Farrukh Shah Khan discusses the issues relating to clean water supply in South Asia with Ali Hasan Cemendtaur who proposes some solutions to this growing intractable problem.
