What Indus Means for Pakistan
90% of Pakistan’s people and more than three-quarters of its economy resides in the Indus Basin.
More than 80% of Pakistan’s arable land is irrigated by its waters.
Nine out of the ten largest cities in Pakistan are situated within 50 km or less of the waters of Indus; the one exception being Quetta
The Indus River has served as the vibrant core of the social, cultural, and economic life of what is today called Pakistan for well over a documented 5,000 years. But, today, one is forced to wonder if it will be able to do so even for another 100 years?
