Temporary Settlement Support Unit

Introduction and Background


The Temporary Settlement Support Unit (TSSU) collects information on temporary settlements following the 2012 floods in Sindh and Balochistan. The TSSU captures information related to the displacement/movement of affected populations and sectoral needs in temporary settlements. TSSU also incorporates a capacity building component that aims to develop the knowledge of actors (including the Govt. of Pakistan, UN, international and national NGOs) involved in managing temporary settlements during the 2011 flood response and future emergencies.
