Building Disaster Resilience Program Phase I

Introduction/ Background:     Disaster and emergency response is the area where FDO has specialized in the last few years. While it prepares communities to mitigate the risks of disasters, it focuses on responding to emergencies and early recovery. However, it helps to keep connecting communities to the organizations who are already working on the capacity building component of vulnerable communities. FDO is implementing Building Disaster Resilience in Pakistan, a project of sixteen months (May 2017 to August 2018). The focus of the project is to improve the living standard of the marginalized communities with an integrated approach.  Shelter, Community Physical infrastructure schemes, skill-based training's and provision of tool kits, Health & Nutrition, and agricultural Initiatives are the major domain of this project.  Objective:  Target communities have effective disaster risk management structures in place to take up and advocate resilience building measures;  

  • Target communities and households are prepared to (a) cope with climate-related natural disasters and (b) adopt risk reduction measures and Target communities & households are introduced to sustainable livelihoods and environmental management practices for resilience building.
