Pakistan has the widest irrigation system in the world. The river system of Pakistan originates from the snow-covered Himalayan and the Karakoram range. There are five major rivers of Pakistan which are filled by several small rivers. Pakistan’s river system consists of more than 60 small and large rivers. Two-thirds of the water supplied for irrigation schemes and in homes comes from the Indus River and its tributaries. The most widely spread canal system is of great importance and supplement to the agriculture of the country. Among the available resources of water in Pakistan, the river water is the biggest one. Pakistan is the 3rd largest agriculturally based economy in the world and rivers are the most important sources of water used in agriculture for irrigation and other domestic uses, is Pakistan’s longest and largest river. This is a list of some rivers wholly or partly in Pakistan.
Most of the rivers in Pakistan also flow into India. To promote peace and avoid political or social rivalry between the two countries water treaties were signed to determine which waters belong to which country. For example, the Indus Waters Treaty where the waters of Chenab are allocated to Pakistan even though it is a major river in India. India retained the right to use the western waters for non-irrigation projects while Pakistan was to irrigate using the rivers of Jhelum, Chenab, and the Indus. India has control of the Punjab, Sutlej, Beas, and Ravi for irrigation while Pakistan is not allowed to irrigate using these rivers.
