Hisaar Foundation – a foundation for water, food and livelihood security, holds an international water conference every 2 years. This conference has gained a ‘must attend’ status in the region due to the bold and engaging ways in which it addresses water issues.
Pakistan is uniquely situated in relation to the Third Pole and the Himalayan region, the Indus river system, the Punjab aquifer, the stark desert areas and the coastline on the Arabian Sea. It is also sits on the cusp of South Asia and Central Asia, and is linked to China, Iran and the Middle East, as well as to the Asia Pacific region. These linkages give this conference its value, focus and depth.
This conference is attended in large numbers by participants from Pakistan, South Asia and across the globe. Since this conference is about the future of water, we will be mainstreaming many cross-cutting themes with special focus on youth, the inclusion of women, marginalized groups and poor communities.
