Project Objective

The project implementation was completed with an integrated approach through following key objectives:

  • To enhance the knowledge and capacities of multi stakeholders about DRR, DRM and Emergency First Aid through capacity building;
  • to enhance the resilience through improved infrastructures and strengthened communication and early warning mechanisms;
  • Improve economic conditions through infrastructures development for livelihood modelling, effective water resource management and institutional strengthening, and;
  • Constitute an effective mechanism for coordinated response at community level through CBDRM, implementation of response plans and networking with stakeholders.
Project Outcome

Communities and vulnerable groups enabled to maintain normal pace of life and secure assets in the face of climate induced disasters.

Project Impact

Building resilient and adaptive Communities in Quetta & Chaghi Districts by investing into preparedness and mitigation measures in the context of climate change.

Project Description

This project was designed with mitigation, adaptation and preparedness approach to cater climate induced multi-hazard emerging as disasters in form of flash floods, earthquakes and drought in targeted districts i.e. Chaghi and Quetta of Balochistan province.

The project success fully ensured to improve lives and livelihood of the people in targeted area with multiple infrastructure interventions i.e. channelization of flash floods water through water conservation structures at the same time mitigating droughts and also serving as flood protection for the people. The project program used multi-dimensional approach. At one hand increased awareness through soft components of community based CBDRM, SBDRM trainings, Simulation/ evacuation exercises to make the community resilient in case of disaster as a first response including most vulnerable people; PWDs, Man, Women, girls, boys and Children. 2ndly through networking exercises increased the stakeholders’ collaboration through close integration of communities and different government departments. 3rdly through O&M trainings enhanced and involved communities to ensure sustainability and maintenance of the infrastructures constructed under the project for mitigations and protection of the vulnerable communities.

Last but not the least invested in resilient infrastructures through retrofitting of the public buildings, flood protection works, water conservations structures to create safe environment for the residents of the area.

The project impact was evident during 2022 floods, which hit Balochistan along with whole country. No causalities reported in the areas where this project was implemented, rather the flood protection works protected the whole communities effectively during recent floods and water conservation structures provided support in ground level water recharge for drought mitigation.
