Evaluation of the Livelihoods Recovery for Flood Affected Populations in Pakistan

The 2010 floods in Pakistan affected more than 20 million people, with loss of lives and livelihoods, and the destruction of homes, basic infrastructure and standing crops. Sindh and Punjab were the most affected provinces, whereas according to the NDMA’s ranking of the flood affected districts, District Dadu & Jamshoro in Sindh province and District Rajanpur in Punjab province had been categorized as ‘severely affected’ by the floods, requiring emergency and early recovery support on priority basis. In order to address the time critical early recovery needs, Concern implemented the project under evaluation, ‘Livelihoods Recovery for the Flood Affected Populations in Sindh & Punjab’. The specific objective was to ensure that flood affected targeted populations have access to goods, services and support allowing for a return to normality. Upon completion of the Project, CWW engaged third party external evaluators to evaluate the project with particular emphasis on appropriateness, timeliness, efficiency and effectiveness of the interventions.
