SCCI and WWF Pakistan are collaborating to promote water conservation efforts

The Sarhad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) and World Wide Fund (WWF) Pakistan have reached an agreement to jointly address the issue of water wastage in the provincial capital. The agreement was reached during a meeting between a delegation from WWF Pakistan, led by Mohammad Rashid, Program Manager for International Labour and Environmental Standards, and SCCI President Fuad Ishaq in Peshawar on Friday.

Expressing concern over the widespread wastage of water in Peshawar, Mr. Ishaq called for collaborative efforts to conserve water. The WWF Pakistan delegation, including Mohammad Waseem, Head of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region, Aimal Khan Barki, Conservation Officer Peshawar, and others, provided an overview of the Fund’s interventions and projects in various sectors like agriculture, forest, wildlife, climate change, and oceans.

During the meeting, Mr. Ishaq identified potential areas of collaboration between the two organizations. He suggested involving relevant authorities to control water wastage, proposing that establishments such as ice factories, cold storages, and other important sectors be encouraged to adopt water conservation measures.

Earlier, Fuad Ishaq participated in a stakeholders’ workshop organized by WWF Pakistan on the increasing water challenges in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. He shared proposals for the conservation and preservation of water with both organizers and participants during the workshop.
