Dadu district faces multi-hazard disasters like flash/riverine floods and severe prolonged droughts. Such multi-dimensional challenges weaken the coping capacity of the communities and exacerbate vulnerability. As per the assessment data, agriculture is the main source of livelihood for 70% of people in the area. This put the communities at high risk to losing their main income source due to natural disasters which in the past have caused significant damage/destruction to crops and livestock. Vast numbers of livestock were washed away in previous disasters as people had not identified a safe place for them in advance so had to leave them when floods struck. The large proportion of people does not have land ownership and adopted crop sharing patterns, which in turn make them more dependent on the landlords. The data shows that only 18.40% respondents from Dadu reported to have land ownership, while 81% people did not own any land. Those who work as tenants/lessee are dependent on the production of seasonal crop to continue their farming cycle. HHELP is striving hard to reduce the loss of lives and household assets through communities preparedness and effective emergency response;
