5,500 houses of central Hunza to get clean drinking water

9 October 2020

On 8 October in Pakistan, the Gilgit-Baltistan government signed an agreement of partnership with the Aga Khan Agency for Habitat (AKAH) Pakistan to conduct a study for provision of drinking water to central Hunza where people have been hit hard by recent floods in Hassanabad and Ultar Nullahs. Using its rich experience around the design and implementation of water supply systems in mountain areas combined with its hazard risk assessment and overall habitat planning expertise, the AKAH will provide technical support to the government on this highly important study. Addressing on the occasion, Deputy Commissioner Hunza Fayaz Ahmed hoped that the partnership with the AKAH will enable district administration to provide sustainable access to clean drinking water to 5,500 households.
