Mid-term Evaluation Pakistan
Welthungerhilfe Country Program 2011-2015 (PAK 1037-11/P3907)
In 2010, Pakistan experienced the worst floods in its history in the wake of heavy monsoon rains that were leaving almost 20 per cent of the country’s total land area inundated. Welthungerhilfe initiated relief interventions in flood-affected regions.
Brief descritption of the project
More than 20 million people were affected by the flooding and almost 2,000 persons lost their lives. In cooperation with its international partner organisations of the Alliance2015, Welthungerhilfe decided to resume its work in Pakistan and initiated extensive relief interventions in the flood-affected regions of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) and Southern Punjab Provinces. A Country Office was established in Islamabad, and a project office opened in Multan (Southern Punjab). In addition, Welthungerhilfe continued projects with two local partner organisations from the districts Shangla, Swat and Kohistan (KPK), which had been in long-term cooperation since 2005.
The Country Programm for Pakistan builds on the development objectives of the Government of Pakistan (GoP) as derived from the Preliminary Damage and Needs Assessment which highlighted the principles of reconstruction (to build back better) with a commitment to a consistent and co-ordinated approach to meet the needs of affected populations. Welthungerhilfe commits itself to work in this challenging environment based on the organisation’s core competencies in the area of Rural Development and WASH, and to share the experience with civil society partners in Pakistan. The Country Programm approach follows the concept of Linking Relief, Rehabilitation and Development (LRRD) as a guiding principle to move forward from emergency relief to development assistance.
