Government in Pakistan is failing on Millennium Goals. Drinking water in most areas of the country is contaminated and cause of increasing death rate. Food security is jeopardized due to poor management of water resources in at least three provinces. Most of the funds allocated for water have disappeared into the pockets of corrupt bureaucracy. Although new civilian government is issuing press statements to help the deteriorating situation but SDAWP doesn't see any positive change in the near future.
