Global Development Workshops in Pakistan
UPSIGN EVENT: GCRF 2020 WORKSHOPS IN ISLAMABAD
In a report by the United Nations, Pakistan is ranked 147 out of the 188 countries survey for human development (UNDP Human Development Report 2016).
Making progress towards the UN Development goals has been slow, and is exacerbated by the rapidly increasing population (currently 210 M people)
Poorly panned urbanisation as well as the influx of people internally displaced as a result of conflict and disaster has lead to the proliferation of "off grid" communities , particularly in the North West FATA region.
These communities have little or no access to healthcare, electrical power (50M people are off grid) or quality education.
