Since mid-June, heavy monsoon rains and floods in Pakistan have affected approximately 2.3 million people. They have destroyed at least 95.350 homes and damaged another 224.100. In terms of infrastructural and human impact, Sindh and Balochistan have been the most severely affected. Nearly 504,000 livestock were killed in Balochistan Province. Access to flood-affected areas has been impeded by damages to almost 3,000km of roads and 129 bridges. A multisectoral rapid need assessment was conducted in Balochistan’s 10 districts at the request of the Balochistan Provincial disaster Management Authority (PDMA). This assessment identified priority needs and gaps within each sector. Humanitarian partners support the Government’s response in affected areas. They redirect existing resources to meet urgent needs and work to scale up the response.
