Sob exigências de nacionalistas islâmicos, o atual Paquistão foi criado a partir da divisão do subcontinente indiano em 1947, e depois da separação de Bangladesh em 1971. A área total de terra é de 770.875 km2, não incluindo as regiões disputadas de Jammu e Caxemira (reivindicadas tanto pelo Paquistão quanto pela Índia). Suas fronteiras situam-se na Índia, China, Afeganistão, Irã e no Mar Arábico ao sul. Há uma rica diversidade de paisagens, incluindo montanhas, desertos e áreas de delta de rios. Entretanto, o Paquistão é principalmente um país de terra seca, 80% árido ou semi-árido, e com altos níveis de escassez de água
