Pakistan : Current ground zero of the climate crisis.
When I read Blogs on this site I feel that agriculture in Pakistan is still 50 year behind modern agriculture practice in west. It’s like ancient methods of agriculture and irrigation vs. modernization and sustainable methods of west.
Pakistan today is the current ground zero of the climate crisis.
Ironic, that Pakistan, considered one of the top three (Pakistan, South Africa and Egypt) water-limited nations among the world's 25 most populous countries, is drowning as the banks of the drought-threatened Indus overflow, obliterating centuries of ancient agricultural systems.
How the farmers who are backbone of Pakistan agriculture based economy would change their farming practices to the new global warming challenges is yet to be seen.
