Extreme rainfall and earthquakes – Pakistan is hit by natural disaster after natural disaster. The last major flooding after heavy rains in Pakistan occurred in 2010. Especially the smallholders suffer from the regular earthquakes, flooding and landslides. Their simply-built houses are swept away by nature’s force, and fields and irrigation systems are destroyed. The crops in the fields are ruined, and fields cannot be prepared for planting. Disaster risk reduction measures help people to better prepare for coming emergencies such as torrential monsoon rains.
