The 2.5-year WAQAR project aims to provide livelihoods and integrated basic services for displaced people in Pakistan. The project objective is to enable refugees and other temporary displaced people to become productive members of their host community and participate in furthering their common resilience, socio-economic growth, and development. The project will be implemented in North Waziristan in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Pishin in Baluchistan provinces in Pakistan. Pakistan is hosting one of the largest refugee population in the world over a long period of time. The majority of displaced people and refugee population rely on informal work, loans, income support and aid. Economic decline, unemployment, and the COVID-19 pandemic as well as impacts of climate change in Pakistan in the form of droughts and flooding have combined to deepen food insecurity and poverty. Displaced people frequently live-in overcrowded conditions with insufficient access to water, sanitation and health facilities, particularly exacerbating the vulnerabilities of women and girls. The objective, and results of the project are as under;

  • Goal: Livelihoods and Integrated Health and WASH Service strengthening and support for displaced populations in Pakistan
  • Impact: Refugees and other displaced persons are productive members of their host communities and participate in furthering their common resilience, socioeconomic growth and development.
  • Intermediate Outcome 1: Increased income generation and livelihood opportunities for displacement affected persons  
  • Intermediate Outcome 2: Increased access for displacement affected persons to integrated basic services (education, health, water, sanitation and energy)
