HDF through its development programs is working to preserve the ecosystem and create a healthy environment by providing clean drinking water, better sanitation facilities, waste disposal, suitable adaptation to climate change and increase in forest cover. Our purpose is to raise the quality of life by providing communities with a clean environment and make them vibrant and self-sustaining.

Under this program, communities are encouraged to highlight pertinent environmental issues and then suggest possible solutions. The Community Physical Infrastructure (CPI) projects are completed through partnerships with donors, and include installation of hand pumps, tube wells, safe drinking water plants, water schemes, construction of link roads, water channels lining, street pavements, latrines, sewerage system, flood bunds, reservoirs and construction of delay action/ check dams.

27.2 million Pakistanis do not have access to safe water and 52.7 million do not have access to adequate sanitation facilities.
According to the Global Climate Risk Index 2020, Pakistan is ranked fifth in the list of countries most vulnerable to climate change.
Between 1999 to 2018, the country witnessed 152 extreme weather events and suffered huge losses equaling USD 3.8 billion.
Pakistan is facing increases in average temperatures significantly above the global average with a potential rise of 1.3°C-4.9°C by the 2090’s.
