Chitralis chalk out own disaster risk management plans

17 May 2021

In Pakistan, the residents of the disaster-prone villages of Chitral have formulated their own disaster risk management plans to mitigate the destruction caused by natural calamities. Wasif Ahmed, resilience manager of an international organisation based in Chitral, said that the region was highly vulnerable to natural hazards like hydrological, geo-climatic and glacial lake outburst floods. Trained by the Aga Khan Agency for Habitat, the vulnerable villagers have formulated their own disaster risk management plans keeping in view the nature of the hazard and its anticipated magnitude.
