In the wake of the terrible floods of 2014, Grassroots partnered with Concern Worldwide to help the affected communities of District Layyah through a project called, CBDRM (Community Based Disaster Risk Management). The broad objective of this initiative is to support and strengthen local communities’capacities in disaster preparedness and management so they can recover from current disasters and be better prepared for the future. The project has been stretched over a period of 16 months (July 2014 to Oct 2015) to enhance awareness raising and capacity building in the sector of CBDRM of local communities in 22 Ucs. Through this project, we aim to create local communtiy groups/organisations that can provide services to their own communities, build networks for cooperation, promotion, replication and adaptations on preparedness and mitigation. We hope to leave the community stronger, better prepared and more resilient.
Southern Punjab and Interior Sindh form the majority of the flood plains in Pakistan, and with recurrent floods in the recent history, Grassroots Pakistan mobilized its vast network of field staff in order to provide relief materials to flood affectees on an immediate basis. To prevent further loss of life or property, Grassroots Pakistan has constructed roads and weirs along strategic routes for effective evacuation and provision of relief goods.
