A commission has been formed to work on the transition of water from Panjshir to Kabul, the Ministry of Energy and Water said.
The commission will be led by Second deputy Prime Minister, Mullah Abdul Salam Hanafi.
The acting Minister of Energy and Water said that they have talked about the project with some national and international companies.
This comes as the residents of Kabul city are facing shortages of drinking water.
"To resolve the drinking water problem of the Kabul residents, we will conduct several meetings this week to make plans for the future. We are in contact with some of the companies to urge them to come and we will pave the ground for them," said Abdul Latif Mansoor, acting Minister of Energy and Water.
This comes as Kabul residents have complained over the lack of access to enough drinking and irrigation water.
"We are facing a lot of problems over water. Some people even cannot go to work. We call on the government to facilitate our access to water," said Sultan Mohammad, a Kabul resident.
"The supply of water of Kabul city has dropped. Despite the shortage of water, the people still are not cautious about it and waste it," said Rasul Obdi, a resident of Kabul.
According to the analysts, due to constant drought and lack of water management, there has been a significant reduction of water in Kabul.
