2019 Pakistan Drought - Sindh Drought Needs Assessment
The Natural Disasters Consortium (NDC) conducted the Sindh Drought Needs Assessment to evaluate the impact of drought on:
- Agriculture (crop cultivation, production, water availability and livestock)
- Livelihoods and incomes
- Food consumption and security
- Health and nutrition
- Access to housing, water and sanitation
- Hygiene practices of households and communities
To facilitate its evaluation, the NDC uses both quantitative and qualitative data that was collected from 1,229 households located in 69 drought-notified revenue villages. The villages were in the following eight districts: Tharparkar, Umerkot, Sanghar, Thatta, Badin, Jamshoro, Dadu and Kambar Shahdadkot.
The assessment provides recommendations on the aforementioned topics to the Government of Sindh, NDC partners, and other decision/policymakers to prioritize actions (short, medium and long term) in relevant sectors and geographic areas to address immediate needs, build back better and increase future resilience to drought.
