Real life stories of peasant communities from Sindh, Pakistan who endured devastating floods of 2010 and rebuilt their lives with the help of ILO, FAO and UN WOMEN, through a One UN project funded by UN Trust Fund for Human Security.

This compilation of case studies demonstrates the resilience of 11800 peasants who have braved the devastating floods of 2010 and rebuilt their lives. These success stories of human struggle to recovery from disaster and sustainable empowerment have come from a One UN project, "Livelihood Restoration, Protection and Sustainable Empowerment of Vulnerable Peasant Communities in Sindh province" (LRP) that diversified the livelihoods, increased the access to social security and civic/ human rights and reduced the disaster risk of landless peasants. The project that started in 2013 and ends June, 2016 was implemented by the International Labour Organization, Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and UN Women. The LRP project was funded by the United Nations Trust Fund for Human Security (UNTFHS).
