Pioneering knowledge base launched: Pakistan Water Gateway

Following up from this year's World Water Day and the call for action, IUCN Pakistan successfully launched a comprehensive water knowledge base, the Pakistan Water Gateway.

A minor going to fetch potable water from far flung areas

The Pakistan Water Gateway is intended to enhance access to information on water resources and knowledge available on the Web. It is a pioneering web-based knowledge product archiving information on a range of water issues pertaining to Pakistan.

The Pakistan Water Gateway is a reference repository for an evolving body of water resource knowledge. It will link government, civil society, media, experts, donors and the general public with their global counterparts, weaving a web of information and experience sharing.

The knowledge base also serves to assess and disseminate shared experiences, publicize policies, guidelines and facilitates cooperation for a scientific discourse. It provides links to the current national and international programmes on water, and functions as an interactive point for sharing and browsing websites of water-related organizations, government bodies and NGOs. The site contains comprehensive papers on critical water issues, experts’ opinion and a list of institutions working on water-related themes, as well as communities' voices and experiences.
