Migration is a way to move from one place to another in
order to live and work. Movement of people from their home to another city, for
a job, shelter or some other reasons is called migration. Migration from rural
areas to urban areas has increased in past few years in Pakistan.
Causes of Migration
Nowadays, many people decide to migrate to have a better
life. Employment opportunities are the most common reason due to which people
migrate. Except this, lack of opportunities, better education, construction of
dams, globalization, natural disaster (flood and drought) and sometimes crop
failure forced villagers to migrate to cities. There are less earning opportunities in
villages. There are hospitals with lack of facilities. People are not aware of
new technological advancements. Quality of education is poor as compared to a

Migration in Pakistan
Pakistan is among the most urbanized countries of South
Asia. As challenges urban planning is gradually finding space in the policy.
According to 1998 census records, some 10 million people,
or 8 per cent of the population of Pakistan, were internal or international
With an urban population growing three percent per year,
Pakistanis are flocking to cities faster than any other country in South Asia.
By 2030, more than half of Pakistan’s projected 250 million citizens are
expected to live in cities.
The most frequent reasons given for migrating within
Pakistan were related to family and marriage, although employment and business
reasons were also common. The
main drivers of Pakistan’s urban growth are high birth rates and migration from
rural areas. Migrants are attracted to cities for better jobs and improved
access to basic services.
Regions in which there was widespread out-migration were
those where incomes were low and uncertain.
Reasons for rural migration included displacement due to
development projects; migration from arid areas; migration of share-tenants and

housing quality and affordability
The State Bank of Pakistan has estimated that across all
major cities, urban housing was approximately 4.4 million units short of demand
in 2015. If current trends continue, Pakistan’s five largest cities will
account for 78 percent of the total housing shortage by 2035.
When provided, housing is often low quality. Pakistan
ranks eighth among the ten countries that collectively hold 60 percent of
substandard housing across the world. Karachi, one of
the world’s fastest growing mega cities with an estimated 17 million people.
In most Pakistani cities, water is supplied
only four to 16 hours per day and to only 50 percent of the population.
According to the Asian Development Bank (ADB), 90 percent of water supply
schemes are unsafe for drinking. Shared latrines among households are common in
cities and access to solid waste management services remains low. The World
Bank estimates that poor sanitation costs Pakistan around 3.9 percent of GDP.
While overall health and nutrition are better
for urban than for rural population child mortality and malnutrition indicators
show that Pakistan’s urban poor have health outcomes only marginally better
than the rural poor. Better health outcomes in urban areas are explained by
improved access to private health care in cities.
Although urban areas have higher student
enrollment and better learning outcomes. Like healthcare, better education in
cities is explained by the private sector. The absence of educational and
health facilities in smaller cities pushes people towards big cities, where
service delivery becomes increasingly strained as the urban population grows.
Outdated land use regulation and building
codes, the absence of a unified land record system and patchy data on land use
result in poor urban land management. One consequence is extreme inequality in
land use. In Karachi, 36 percent of the population lives in formally planned
settlements that consume 77 percent of the city’s residential land, where urban
density can be as low as 84 people per hectare. On the other hand, Karachi’s
many informal settlements have densities of more than 4,500 per hectare. These
hugely varying densities have resulted in unequal access to vital urban
Unplanned urban sprawl continues unchecked.
Housing schemes built beyond city limits have used up an estimated 60,000 acres
of prime agricultural land. Rawalpindi, Karachi and Lahore have seen the
development of large real estate schemes by private and military developers
particularly along the highways. These ventures are redefining urban limits,
further straining service delivery.
