Empowering communities to mitigate disaster risks in Chitral (Pakistan)


In an attempt to reduce Pakistan’s vulnerability, a DRR project in Pakistan focuses on interventions at the policy as well as at the community level. The initiative is structured around three pillars of activities:

  • Institutional development support and strengthening the government disaster management organizations at national, provincial and district levels.
  • Support to community resilience building for at-risk communities in disaster prone districts taking into account the nominated high-risk districts specified in the National Disaster Management Plan and
  • Technical support to the development and application of building codes and regulations for engineered and non-engineered construction with focus on seismic and flood risk mitigations.
