Karezes are indigenous sub-surface water management structures and the only source of water for irrigation and human needs in the remote, mountainous drylands of Balochistan, Pakistan. The reduced influx of water due to clogged channels and conveyance losses was a huge factor in low productivity and food insecurity in Qila Iskan Khan village, forcing the villagers to migrate to other areas in search of livelihood. This video shows how the underground water channels were cleaned and fixed with perforated UPVC pipes.
