Pakistan sits at the crossroads of Asia and the Middle East, a geographically and culturally diverse nation with fast-growing power and influence.

It has the world’s sixth-largest population and is rapidly urbanising, which makes reaching everyone with basic services extremely challenging. People are moving to towns faster than in any other South Asian country, straining already limited services. And natural disasters present further obstacles to development and the sustainability of water and sanitation services.
