The province of Balochistan experienced several significant natural disasters over the past ten years including major recurring floods in 2010, 2011 and 2012, cyclones, earthquakes and prolonged droughts. Lagging in economic, human development and social indicators increases the vulnerability of Balochistan to natural disasters. The Government of Balochistan (GoB) requested World Bank’s assistance through the Multi-Donor Trust Fund (MDTF) to support the development of its DRM capacity. The Balochistan Disaster Management Project (BDMP) aims to strengthen the capacity of PDMA Balochistan to prepare for and respond to natural disasters. The overall objective of the assignment is to undertake project Monitoring and Validation of Balochistan Disaster Management Project and provide suggestions/recommendations for the project, specifically highlighting implementation lessons to determine whether project is on track to achieving results and ensure that corrective action can be taken on a timely basis.
