For centuries, the people around Manchar Lake, Pakistan, have relied on the freshwater lake as a source of livelihood. Due to poor irrigation planning and management, the lake is now highly polluted, which has wide ranging effects: the loss of livelihoods for women and men; women’s decreased mobility; and child labour and the gap between boys’ and girls’ education.
