Introduction


The consistently increasing threat to adverse effects of climate change in general and to water resources of Pakistan is worrisome. When Pakistan's high population growth rate and its tremendous dependence on water for agriculture products is considered this threat seems even more grave. Keeping in view the stress Pakistan's water resources are under, it's important to understand the implications of change in the quality, quantity and patterns of water availability in Pakistan.

The establishment of National Capacity Building Institute (NCBI) at headquarters of Pakistan Council of Research in Water Resources (PCRWR) is the step in the direction of enhancing the ability of Pakistan's in-service water professionals and students of water resources in applying traditional and modern techniques to understand and solve the water resources issues being faced.
