What does Donald Trump mean for Pakistan?

Wide speculation leading up to the inauguration of United States President Donald Trump has now converged onto at least one point of clarity: The Republican-led U.S. government intends to stay close to Trump's campaign pronouncements. In that context, what does a Trump administration mean for Pakistan? In a new blog for Developing Pakistan, CDPR Communications Associate Shehryar Nabi lays out the issues to watch.

How water price and income shape water demand in Faisalabad

Faisalabad is a rapidly growing industrial hub in Pakistan's Punjab province. As its population grows, its water distribution systems become increasingly stressed, leaving the poorest citizens vulnerable.This brief, based on a report titled "Water Pricing to Promote Equity, Efficiency and Sustainable Development in the Growing City of Faisalabad, Pakistan", explains how water price and household incomes influence water consumption in Faisalabad. It shows that while both factors - in addition to other external influences - have a substantive impact on water demand, the price of water has a relatively small effect. Based on these findings, the brief offers policy recommendations for making water access sustainable and equitable.

About CDPR
In Pakistan, policy decisions and public discourse are often uninformed by available research. The Consortium for Development Policy Research (CDPR) bridges this gap by communicating cutting-edge, evidence-based research on development issues in Pakistan to an audience of policymakers, students, the media and the wider public. With support from the International Growth Centre (IGC), CDPR disseminates policy briefs, hosts events, engages with the media and produces digital content to make topics in development research such as economic growth, energy, education, health and governance intelligible to both decision makers and the public.
