ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz has said that the government is taking a number of special initiatives to improve the environmental conditions in the country.

In a message on the occasion of World Environment Day being observed today (Monday), the prime minister said the topic of the day "Desert and Desertification" is very important for Pakistan. Eighty percent of our land is Barani and there is water shortage.

The government, he said has prepared special programmes for conservation of water and their judicious use including drip irrigation and other new techniques.

He said in Barani areas, there is need to construct more mini dams and check dams to conserve water. He pointed out that improvement in environment helps the citizens as global warming is a great challenge. He said the government has set up an institute of global warming and global change to study the impact of global warming.

He appealed the nation to use water with great care so that the surplus water is used for other purposes like agriculture. He said judicious use of water in the agricultural sector will benefit the farmers and their prosperity will be prosperity of entire country.
