Kalabagh Dam was "critical" in the face of the severe scarcity of water in the country, said Chairman WAPDA while briefing Senate Committee.

Wapda Chairman Muzamil Hussain made the observation as he briefed the Senate Forum for Policy Research on the country's water crisis, highlighting the need for the urgent development of water reservoirs.

It is pertinent to mention that Pakistan is currently facing a severe scarcity of water and the country's name has appeared on a list of the world's 15-most water scarce nations at the fourth spot.

Hussain said the Kalabagh Dam will have the capacity to hold 6.1 million acre-feet (maf) of water and generate 3,600 megawatts (MW) of electricity.
