The World Bank and the Government of Pakistan signed four agreements worth $650 million to support different projects of health, education, water and disaster sectors in Pakistan. Around $200 million are allocated to Baluchistan integrated water resources management and development project. These steps have been ensured to strengthen the working ability for water resources monitoring and management to improvise the community-based water management for targeted irrigation schemes in Baluchistan.

Baluchistan integrated water resources management and development project is all about institutions, water infrastructure and management investment along with project management and technical assistance. In addition, the $300 million Third Punjab Education Sector Project (PESP-III) was also signed. This objective is for the support of Punjab in order to improve school participation, completion and teaching-learning practices with a specific focus on Low Performing Districts. Some details of this project include improvised access, quality and education system management along with the capacity building, project management, monitoring and evaluation.

The other project is the Sindh resilience project, which amounts $100 million. Aims of this project include mitigation of floods and drought risks at the selected areas and to empower Sindh’s capacity to manage natural disasters.
