A fresh study jointly done by Pakistan and the United States has said that the conversion of the Chotiari wetlands into a reservoir has ultimately turned into a disaster due to the resultant water logging, soil salinity and negative vegetation in the adjacent areas of the structure. It used remote sensing and geospatial tools to quantify the salt-affected and waterlogged areas within a five kilometre buffer area of the reservoir. Historically, the Chotiari was a complex of deep lakes and riverine Makhi forests with a rich ecosystem. In , some wildlife conservation organisations suggested that this site should be submitted for consideration as a Ramsar site, however that did not happen. The Ramsar Convention on Wetlands is an international treaty for the conservation and sustainable use of wetlands.
