The Pakistan Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) was established throughan act of parliament in February 1958 for integrated and rapid development and maintenanceof water and power resources of the Country. This includes controlling soil salinity and water logging to rehabilitate the affected land in order to strengthen the predominantly agriculturaleconomy of the country. As per the charter, amended in March 1959 to transfer the existingelectricity departments from the federating units to it, WAPDA has been assigned the duties of investigation, planning and execution of projects and schemes for:
Generation, Transmission and distribution of power,
Irrigation, water supply and drainage,
Prevention of water logging and reclamation of saline land,
Flood control and
Inland navigation.Under the later on developments, vis-à-vis the “Energy Policy 1994”, setting up of thermal power generation projects was shifted to the private sector. Similarly, as a result of restructuring of the Power Wing, the utility part was corporatized into independent companies.This shift from convergence to divergence gave birth to 13 entities to operate in differentzones. These are National Transmission and Dispatch Company (NTDC), four thermal power generation companies (GENCOs) and eight distribution companies (DISCOs). The presentstatus of these companies is of corporate public limited entities under the Umbrella of EPCO,ultimately to go privatized as planned. The residual Power Wing is therefore now responsiblefor major hydro-electric power projects and schemes in operation.

Fivemassive hydropower projects have been announced by the President of Pakistan; these are to be completed by 2016, with a generation capacity of 9,500 MW. Two of the projects are readyfor construction, while three are in the stages of feasibility studies and preparation of tender documents.Water Vision 2025 consists of three phases. Phase I was expected to start in 1993 butwas delayed. The priority of water sector projects under Phase I of Water Vision 2025 areGomal Dam(NWFP),Mirani DamandMithan Kot BarrageatKachhi Canal(Balochistan) raising of Mangla Dam(Azad Kashmir), Greater Thal Canal phase I (Punjab) and Thar/RaineeCanals phase I (Sindh).

The total cost of Phase II projects will be$8.94 billion. These 11 projects will have a storage capacity of 12.79 millionacre-feet, wouldgenerate over 3362 mW of power, and would irrigate 1.4 million hectares of land. Under PhaseIII,Yugo Dam,Skardu Dam,Dhok Dam,Rohtas Dam,  Naulang DamandKhadji Damwill be completed.
