Storms and heavy monsoon rains in Pakistan have caused widespread flooding and landslides across the country. According to the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), up to 33 million people have been affected by the floods since mid-June 2022 and a total of 90 districts have been labelled by the Government of Pakistan as ‘calamity-hit’, as of 18 November 2022. Besides that, more than two million houses are reported to be damaged across the country.

Given the number of calamity-hit districts and the number of affected people, IOM's Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) decided to roll out its Community Needs Identification (CNI). This was done following coordination and approval from the Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) of Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh. The purpose of the CNI is to understand the displacement situation and multi-sectoral needs of the affected population at the village level. IOM deployed its CNI across the 18 districts reporting the highest displacement in the provinces of Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh. The CNI was thus carried out across 7,211 flood-affected villages or villages that hosted temporary displaced persons (TDPs) that exist under these 18 targeted districts.
