This is a series of 13 human interest stories captured from all the provinces of Pakistan and Pakistan Administered Kashmir. These stories follow the path of the floods and capture the impact of UNDP's early recovery response to equip the flood victims for improving their lives. They successfully manage to capture not just the success stories, but also the local cultural nuances, religious affiliations, political influences and climatic condition that are important considerations in drafting a comprehensive early recovery response. This travel guide starts from Neelum in the North and ends in Thatta way south.
The documentation exercise has been done by Sana Zia, Young Professional Officer UNDP, under the guidance of Ms. Rabia Khattak, Chief Crisis Prevention and Recovery Unit. Story contributions have been made by Nahyan Mirza, Zeeshan Ali Tahir and Hira Hashmey. Mehreen Saeed, Communication Analyst, provided the editorial support.
