Southern Districts Area Water Partnership
Sustainable Farmer’s Training at Gara Mohabat and Potah
OCTOBER 2014 ACTIVITIES
On 20th October, 2014 SDAWP arranged and conducted farmer’s training at Gara Mohabat and Potah, two water scared villages of its command area. The event highlighted disaster in the waiting. Due to construction of Gomal Dam, old Rodhkohi system was blocked and population living in villages suffered. No water to drink and no water for cultivation. Gomal Damn contractors have completed very small distributaries passing through these villages are still waiting for water. Without warabandi; people living in these areas will suffer. The work can be done in days but corrupt Mafia sits on a matter of life and death.
Even though government of the country is signatory to Millennium Development Goals but on ground it is completely absent from the scene in these dry lands that need serious attention at higher level. Southern Districts Area Water Partnership recommends earth moving machinery to level land and manage water resources for alleviation of poverty, ignorance and diseases. Improved budgetary allocations by provincial and federal government can help. Local finances are devoured by corrupt Mafia that rules villages, towns and the cities.
