dc.descriptionPakistan is faced with growing issues concerning water availability and water quality. Participants in the U.S. State Department grant funded Pakistani Educational Leadership (PEL) Project held during the summer at Plymouth State University, 2011 are trying to improve water literacy in Pakistan to prepare for how climate change and other management factors affect water resources in the country. This research evaluated a component of the PEL Project that helps promote environmental sustainability education in Pakistan through a summer professional development institute where participants have to develop master action plans to be implemented upon their return in their home communities. The project focused on the development of knowledge and skills related to watershed education including specifically fieldtrips and activities related to water quality and quantity, biomonitoring, riparian buffer assessment, and more. The Pemigewasset River in New Hampshire was used as a model and participants were encouraged to adapt and transfer meaningful lessons from the Pemigewasset River to the Indus River Watershed in Pakistan. Social networking played a role in supporting grass roots efforts to empower the Pakistani educators to effect positive change.
