90percent of the wastewater is dumped untreated into the watercourses while 80percent of the solid waste is not even collected from the spots where they are dumped.
In order to get rid of this problem the advisor announced that the government is launching the Clean and Green Index next month as it was earlier decided by the Prime Minister.
The index would be addressing the issues of solid and liquid waste management, sanitation and cleanliness, he further added.
The index includes 35 quantifiable indicators which are based on the 5 pillars of clean green Pakistan Movement comprising safe drinking water, liquid waste management, solid waste management, tree plantation and total sanitation or toilets.
Malik Amin further explained that this index will bring a behavioural change for a Clean Green Pakistan.
This waste management and treatment has become a profitable business all over the world and in Pakistan, it has huge opportunities in the private region.
The advisor pledged the government’s full support to the society, private investors and other stakeholders undertaking the sanitation market.
