Current Projects contributing to Climate Change
1. Disaster risk reduction for coastal communities (An extremely poor region lacking in coping capacity, Sindh – Pakistan’s southernmost province, is very vulnerable to the flooding, drought, earthquakes and severe storms from which it often suffers. In collaboration with, the Pakistan Fisherfolk Forum (PFF), Malteser International has been working in Sindh since May 2015 to help the local population to prepare better for such natural disasters. The project is targeted at 56 coastal villages that are located in areas especially threatened by the effects of climate change and natural disasters).
2. Strengthening communities against disaster: Malteser International’s project zone in the coastal Thatta district is particularly vulnerable to natural disasters, but completely lacks the structures necessary to cope with these events. Malteser International is working to improve basic medical care, as well as water, sanitation, and hygiene measures to help develop this coping capacity.
