Pakistan - Flood Impact Assessment, September 2010

The 2010 monsoon flood disaster in Pakistan has been massive and unprecedented, killing more than 1,700 persons, affecting over 20 percent of the land area, more than 14 million people, and causing billions of dollars in losses and damages to infrastructure, housing, agriculture and livestock, and other family assets. Essential infrastructure including roads, bridges and markets has been severely damaged and many remain impassable.

This Assessment aims to quantify the extent of damage and displacement caused by the floods, and their immediate impact on household assets, livelihoods, food consumption and nutrition. It also identifies critical protection, health, water and sanitation issues.
