It's not that everyone looks down on those who are vegetarian or vegan; rather, they just don't understand why anyone would actively choose not to consume meat because it is such an integral part of the food culture. I'm lucky to live in a household that doesn't exclusively make all meals with meat.
First Look A mountain water pipe brings peace to Pakistani village With a limited water supply, villagers in northern Pakistan struggled to grow crops, bathe, and drink clean water. But a new mountain pipe drastically increased water supply, yielding greener fields and a higher quality of life.
Due to an increasing population and rapid industrialization, safe drinking water remains a challenge in Pakistan. By Rina Saeed Khan Thomson Reuters Foundation Siksa, Pakistan When a pipeline was installed last year to bring spring water and snowmelt to this village of households in northern Pakistan, it brought something else as well: Previously, neighbors argued over the limited water Culinary village in pakistan coursed through channels to the town.
To wash their clothes or to bathe, villagers had to clamber down to the river at the bottom of the valley. Fetching drinking water meant climbing up the steep mountainside to a spring.
But not any more. It feeds into a 8,gallon storage tank, which directs the water through irrigation channels that supply 4, people, said Aisha Khan, who heads the Mountain and Glacier Protection Organization MGPOa nonprofit that works in the region.
She estimates the system now channels more than 5 billion liters of water a year — and ensures a water supply year-round. The project was constructed in response to the effects of climate change, she said, which has led to more erratic water supplies in mountain areas, putting lives and incomes at risk.
And with changes in rainfall patterns affecting farming, she said, ensuring food security is seen as the first step in building resilience and reducing vulnerability to climate change impacts.
A time of plenty World Health Organization figures show just 36 percent of Pakistan's population has access to safe drinking water. Siksa's water supply project took a year to put in place, and cost about Sakina, who like most villagers uses just one name, said that until a few years ago water was abundant, with heavy winter snow meaning plenty of water flowed even in summer.
That meant less water for irrigation and less crops and income," she said. But since the water storage tank was installed, "all these fields have become green again," she said, pointing to terraced fields where tomatoes, aubergine, okra, and pumpkin grow against a backdrop of towering, bare-sloped mountains.
Earlier our vegetables would just dry up after we planted them," she said. The steady supply of water even means Siksa's homes are decorated with pots and baskets of flowers. In recent years, Husniat said, the lack of water meant it was hard to ensure children stayed clean.
It was exhausting," she said. They are predicting an even bigger harvest next year, after discovering the water supply is sufficient to irrigate additional farmland, she said. Villagers also have planted fruit trees — meaning better nutrition and higher incomes, Khan said.
The plantation area has become so green now we all go there in the summers for picnics," Sakina said. Khan said the previous government had pushed for more tree planting and provided villagers with free popular saplings, which will also become a new source of income as they grow.
Sakina said Siksa residents know they should not fell trees for fuel but the government's supply of electricity to the village is erratic, leaving them little choice. Get the Monitor Stories you care about delivered to your inbox.
