Despite the pattern of decline in water discharged into the Hamoun Wetlands from Helmand River in Afghanistan, recovery efforts have helped partially revive the imperiled wetlands in Sistan-Balouchestan Province, says the head of the Wetlands Protection Office in the Department of Environment (DoE).
“The revival programs include restoration of the wetlands’ ecosystems, dredging rivers to facilitate water flow, reinforcing embankment dams to store water in valleys and supplying water across major sources of dust storms,” Ahmadreza Lahijanzadeh was quoted as saying by IRNA.
Operations are underway with the help of local communities and based on the Comprehensive Management Plan of Hamoun Wetlands launched in 2015, he said.
