Livelihoods: Restoration after flooding in Pakistan

A case study about supporting vulnerable communities following the 2010 disaster

2013 Available in English

In 2010, the Sidh Province in Pakistan was devastated by severe flooding altering the lives of 18 million people. Further monsoon rains in 2011 only added to the damage. Infrastructure was left in wreckage and many communities vulnerable, without employment, food, shelter, or access to clean water. Tearfund worked with the village communities in the region to establish the Food Security and Livelihood project to alleviate poverty, generate income, and aid recovery from the devastation of the floods.

This case study explores the impact of village-specific projects – such as goat distribution and training in livestock, plants, and skills development for women – set up to rehabilitate communities.
