Pakistan is undergoing rapid change. We face challenges including an energy crisis, poverty, illiteracy, environmental degradation and low human development. At the same time, unprecedented investments are being made in infrastructure, our population is growing and amongst the youngest in the world, we are rapidly urbanising. The Pakistan @ 100 project is an initiative to create greater debate on our country's long-term development, vision and path, focusing on seven crucial themes as the country turns 100 in 2047.
