ABSTRACT

Indus Delta being the 6th largest delta of the world, was earlier environmentally healthy and contributing its due share in the economic growth of the country. During the last six decades construction of reservoirs, canals, diversion of water for irrigation and considerable reduction in seasonal rains etc. substantially decreased the Indus water in the delta. The reduction of fresh water in the deltaic region threatened the livelihood of millions of fisher folk, farmers, marine inhabitants and as well as naturally rich mangroves ecosystem of the area. If the situation continues, the country might lose its major share in revenue generation. Keeping in view the gravity of the circumstances, preemptive measures are required to be taken forthwith. All stake-holders are to be apprised about the significance of the region and ask to play their respective role to save the delta. In this paper efforts have been made to develop a Mathematical Model that acquaints the government about the alarming situation, particularly the degradation of the existence of Mangrove ecosystem in the Indus Delta.
