      Pakistan Stock Markets has outperformed during first nine months of current fiscal year among Global Stock Markets including India, China, Hong Kong, Tokyo, USA and UK. Participation of foreign investment was the main reason behind the better performance of Karachi Stock Exchange. One such method is a groundwater market. SGMA may result in significant cuts to groundwater use, particularly in critically over drafted basins. It is this water scarcity that creates the primary driver for groundwater markets. By allowing the price of water to reflect its true value to users, markets incentivize water conservation and efficiency.

        Of the million irrigation tube-wells in Pakistan, about 60% pump out brackish water due to lack of knowledge about groundwater, estimate experts. They say farmers and well-drillers need to have exact scientific information about depth and quality of the groundwater in their respective areas.   You’ll learn that China has more than companies on our stock and bond markets or capital markets. The book asks some hard for a nuclear exchange between India and Pakistan, with Pakistan.

      Figure-1 is a map of Pakistan showing the river system with dams and barrages and the irrigated areas. The water-resources of Pakistan include surface water, rainfall, and groundwater. The extent of availability of these resources is location-specific. A brief description of water- resources of Pakistan is given in the following sections. Groundwater markets under the water scarcity and declining watertable conditions: The upland Balochistan Region of Pakistan.
