Ahmed Zeeshan Bhatti, an official of Pakistan Council of Research in Water Resources says, "Meters should be installed at different levels to determine usage of water by farmers as per their share. We give flow based supply water to farmers when it is not needed and don't supply when needed badly. We need reforms in the system that can solve our problems" , Bhatti adds

This has resulted in misuse of forests' land and their conversion into non-forestry use. The highest rate of deforestation has been found in Indus Delta mangroves, which have depleted at a rate of 2.3 per cent. This was followed by coniferous forest and reverine forest" he added
