STAFF REPORT ISB: World Wide Fund Pakistan (WWF-Pak) organized one day workshop in order to stress on the natural conservation and biodiversity downstream of Kotri Barrage. The workshop aimed at ecosystems sustainability and providing adequate enabling environment for protection of natural wealth, through uncommon endeavors and extravagant attempts at governmental level to ensure the maximum output.
A report Indus River: Review of Environmental Flows to Maintain Delta Ecosystems is also released by WWF-Pak during the workshop. The report is authored by Dr Christopher J Gippel.
As indicated by the report, the principle dangers to the wellbeing of the Indus Delta incorporate decreased freshwater stream, development of dams and different trenches, infringements, clearing mangroves for horticulture, diminished silt loads, environment decimation and contamination.
Talking on the event, Dr Ghulam Nabi said that the report was created keeping in thought irregularities in reported stream and dregs information. Past reports contained clashing data with respect to delta size, delta rate of progress, mangroves territory, saline interruption and association in the middle of surface and ground water.
The workshop was attended by authorities from different government divisions, NGOs, media delegates and the academia.
