Like Australia, Pakistan is a country of droughts and flooding rains. Pakistan is among the top ten countries most severely impacted by climate change and is expected to be declared water scarce by 2025. The Indus Basin irrigation system no longer provides enough supply for Pakistan’s agricultural needs, meaning farmers increasingly rely on groundwater. The Australian government is supporting a four-year research project to provide Pakistan’s irrigation managers with strategies to improve groundwater management and farming family livelihoods. We present a series of case studies from this project to demonstrate benefits of a collaborative approach.
