The Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) Development Authority has finished working on the construction of seven dams and thirteen small irrigation schemes. The work was under process since 2004 till date.
As per an official because of the completion of these dams and irrigation schemes, a large portion of land could now be used for cultivation.
Some of the completed projects are multipurpose, hence a huge chunk of the population would also take advantage by using clean drinking water.
Additionally, many power producing projects have also been started by the FATA Development Authority which would play a significant role in lessening the energy crises once they get completed.
