RCUWM was formed in 2002 under the auspices of UNESCO for raising capacity building, research and exchange of strategies of member countries for development of water sector, said a press release.

Tajul said that apart from the salt-water in the coastal areas, supplying safe drinking water in some parts of the country has become a challenge.

He mentioned that this challenge would be met if water could be supplied through zones and sub-zones through the creation of ‘National Water Grid Line’.

The meeting was attended by ministers of water affairs of 16 countries including Iraq, Egypt, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Germany and Turkey and various high officials of several international organisations such as UNESCO, UNDP, FAO, WMO, IWA and IsDB.
