Pakistan – Flood Response Community Needs Identification (CNI) Report Round 2 (Jan - Mar 2023)
Mar 28 2023
- Mobility Tracking
- Site Assessment
From June to October 2022, 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 and a total of 90 districts have been labelled by the Government of Pakistan as ‘calamity-hit’, as of 18 November 2022. 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) assessment. This was done following coordination and approval from the Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) of Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Following the first round of the CNI, IOM implemented a second round of the CNI between January and March 2023 to provide partners with timely information on the displacement situation and multisectoral needs of the affected population at the village level.2 For the second round, IOM expanded its CNI from 13 to 19 districts in the provinces of Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The CNI was conducted in a total of 6,367 flood affected villages or villages that hosted temporary displaced persons (TDPs) across the 19 targeted districts.
