HOPE should never go out from ones life
Environment

Environment, our surroundings, encompasses all living and non-living things occurring naturally on Earth.

Little attention is paid to pollution and environmental issues in Pakistan. As a result Pakistan is facing number of environmental issues,

Water pollution from raw sewage
Industrial wastes and agricultural runoff
Limited natural fresh water resources; a majority of the population does not have access to potable water
Deforestation
Soil erosion desertification
Environmental issues in Pakistan threaten the population's health and have been disturbing the balance between economic development and environmental protection. As a great problem for the nature and nation of Pakistan. To overcome environmental related issues the Ministry of Environment of Government of Pakistan takes responsibility to conserve and protect the environment.

The government has expressed concern about environmental threats to economic growth and social development and, since the early 1990s, has addressed environmental concerns with new legislation and institutions such as the Pakistan Environment Protection Council.

And the National Conservation Strategy Report recommends fourteen program areas for priority implementation: maintaining soils in croplands, increasing efficiency of irrigation, protecting watersheds, supporting forestry and plantations, restoring rangelands and improving livestock, protecting water bodies and sustaining fisheries, conserving biodiversity, increasing energy efficiency, developing and deploying renewable resources, preventing or decreasing pollution, managing urban wastes, supporting institutions to manage common resources, integrating population and environmental programs, and preserving the cultural heritage.

Thus, the government's ability to enforce environmental regulations is limited, and private industries often lack funds to meet environmental standards established by international trade organizations.
