Early Recovery - Flood 2012


The heavy monsoon rain spell that began in Pakistan on 7 September 2012 caused massive flooding and inundation of land, with some areas subjected to flooding for three years in a row. The 2012 floods led to more than 400 deaths and widespread damage including the loss of homes and livelihoods, the destruction of standing crop  and the damage to infrastructure across southern Punjab, northern Sindh, and northeastern Balochistan. 

Results from the Multi-Sector Initial Rapid Assessment (MIRA), indicate that 1.8 million people were affected and 386,172 houses were damaged or destroyed. Of the total number of houses affected, approximately 60% were partially damaged and 40% were fully destroyed.The overall objective of the ER strategy is to provide low cost shelter support to the most vulnerable families whose houses have become unhabitable and who lack the means to rebuild their homes by themselves. This section provides figures on early recovery activities in response to the 2012 floods.
