The Coastal Development Authority (CDA) of Sindh is planning to develop 220 islands on Sindh coast which will become the tourist attraction spots.
The meeting was chaired by Chief Minister’s adviser on the environment, Murtaza Wahab.
CDA Sindh will initiate the projects while the provincial cabinet will approve the allocation of fiscal resources.
It is vital to mention here that the CDA Sindh was established in 1994 for the development, improvement, and beautification of the coastal areas of Sindh.
The source information also added that these 220 islands, with around 394 acres of land, are stretched along 120 kilometers long coastal belt of Thatta district.
The overall coastal belt of Pakistan stretches 1,050 kilometers and falls in Sindh and Balochistan provinces. Balochistan coast occupies nearly 700kms of the total area and the coastal areas under Sindh are spread over 350kms.
However, Sindh’s coast is richer than that of Balochistan’s coastal area in terms of fishery resources, as there are 17 creeks in the Indus Delta.
