Pakistan is exposed to recurring floods and droughts. The poorest districts in a province/region are most often also the disaster high-risk districts, illustrating the nexus between disasters, poverty, and vulnerability. PPAF is uniquely placed to promote a culture of safety and resilience as it has unhindered access across Pakistan.
PPAF works in all of the 50 priority districts listed by the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) including the proposed pilot districts. It has extensive outreach across all provinces and regions, while simultaneously incurring very low overhead costs of less than 3% of total project costs.
PPAF has a vast platform of community institutions at hamlet (132,954 COs), village (15,364 VOs), and union council levels (693 LSOs), which provide a sustainable basis for the set-up of Disaster Management Committees (DMCs).
PPAF follows a community-driven development approach to develop and strengthen institutions of the poor. This process empowers communities to seek solutions to their development problems, leading to greater resilience and improved quality of life.
This project is designed to strengthen readiness of the communities in proposed districts through establishing an institutional framework to mobilize and organize communities, understand their specific vulnerabilities to natural hazards and conduct capacity analysis, ensuring that sound structural measures are taken to reduce and protect against community vulnerabilities.
Eight districts from the NDMA district priority list in 4 provinces and Gilgit-Baltistan region have been selected for nationwide coverage taking into account high vulnerability to recurring disasters, incidence and intensity of poverty and existing presence of PPAF programmes to leverage the past and on-going investments. Women, youth and environment will remain mainstreamed across programme activities.
