Disaster risk reduction in Pakistan: The contribution of DEC member agencies, 2010–2012

A paper on the contribution of the Disasters Emergency Committee member agencies from 2010-2012 in Pakistan

2012 Available in English

The absence of effective disaster risk reduction (DRR) and preparedness mechanisms was a major factor that caused the large-scale destruction during the 2010Pakistan floods. The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) commissioned a research study after the crisis in June 2012 to review the nature, strengths, and weaknesses of the government's DRR system in Pakistan, the extent to which DEC member agencies contributed to DRR outcomes through their programme, advocacy, and coordination work and the lessons and recommendations for increasing the effectiveness of DRR work in Pakistan.

This paper discusses the work of DEC member agencies in successfully using the DRR framework following the 2010 floods in Pakistan to prevent further crises from happening.
