Pakistanis migrate in search of water

The government says dams could solve Balochistan province's water problem but it does not have the money to build them.

    In Pakistan’s southwestern Balochistan province, an ancient irrigation system is drying up, forcing people to move elsewhere.

    The government said building dams would help conserve water, but it lacks the required funds.

    Thousands have already migrated after their land dried up.
