A Story within a Story: ADB Helps Women during Pakistan's Post-Flood Reconstruction

Publication | August 2011

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) seeks to improve the lives of women in Sindh in the aftermath of the 2010 flood. ADB is developing a project that will not only transfer assets and skills to women but also empower them and include them in public life. The project will tailor investment plans for communities, and allow women to become more productive and improve their confidence, abilities, and skills so they can work outside the domestic sphere. A pilot initiative is under development and will be rolled out by 2013.
