Presentation Transcript

Local people submitted their request for justice in 2004. After 4 years there is no significant outcome; therefore they reiterate their legitimate request once again saying that:

  • Entire LBOD effluent should be diverted to Dhoro Puran Outfall Drain (DPOD), Kori Creek and other natural routes, Kadhan Pateji Outfall Drain (KPOD) should be completely closed at RD-159

  • The sub-drains of Kotri barrage including Tando Bago, Lowari and Seerani drain be let to outfall in Rann of Kutch through KPOD at RD 00.00

  • The existing Tidal Link Canal, which is main cause of sea intrusion and degradation of wetland, should immediately be de-linked. We propose that dykes should be constructed in between the historical lakes and historical tide line, closing the mouth of tidal link canal

  • The ecology of the wetlands should be restored and wetlands should be brought on their original condition.

  • Government of Pakistan and all the donors including World Bank, Asian Development Bank should publicly take the responsibility of the problems and announce not further extension of the LBOD drains.

They also demand short term measures to compensate the losses
They also demand short – term measures to compensate the losses

  • All the losses including agriculture, livestock, houses and wetlands should be calculated in collaboration with affectees and they should be compensated without any delay.

  • Families of the people who were killed by drowning in drains should be separately compensated.

  • The World Bank and Government of Sindh should initiate a program for employment generation of at least 2000 to 3000 people in the area on emergency basis to protect the right to life and food.

  • The World Bank and Government of Sindh should provide free of cost boats, nets, subsidized gasoline, livestock and at least for four agriculture seasons seed and fertilizer in order to cope the economic shocks people have suffered.

  • Government of Sindh should announce immediately the free fishing zone for fishermen and should shelve the plan if it has to auction or other control mechanism on fishing in Badin in order to facilitate the majority of people to get out from poverty.

  • The water flow to wetlands should be ensured as it was before the operation of the project.

  • Government of Sindh should ensure the supply of irrigation water to this tail area of the canal commands.

  • Free of cost medical facilities should be provided on emergency basis to treat the severe illnesses like tuberculosis and kidney problems for at least two years. This is very serious issue and should be tackled on priority basis to release the health burden of poor.

  • The government of Sindh and World Bank should start a crush program for improving the education in this area and bring the people at Par with other areas in schooling and providing scholarships for higher education.
