KICT: marine pollutionArchive
RECENTLY I, with my other classmates, visited the Karachi International Container Terminal for a study tour that was organised by the Mehran University Institute of Science, Technology, and Development, Jamshoro.
Vessels from different countries are berthed there and release waste into the sea, harming water resources and the environment.
Is there any government plan to deal with this problem?
Civil society members, the media and think tanks should raise their voice for the protection of sea and its resources on which depend the livelihood of fishermen. Meanwhile, the government should immediately find a solution to the problem.
