Nafisa Shah

Nafisa is a journalist for Newsline publications based in Karachi, Pakistan. She has written articles for her monthly magazine, but three of these stand out in support of environmental conservation. One is an article on a village whose inhabitants use dirty water from the Lyari river for all their needs, thus resulting in disease. The article mobilized the villagers into action and they now enjoy the benefits of a water project funded by the World Bank. Another article resulted in pressure against the government from building a highway across a national park. The highway has since been rerouted outside the wildlife preserve. A third article also pressured the government, through a court order, to stop the order which allows the hunting of the Houbara Bustard.
