housing land and property update
Housing Land and Property Update
  • Identification of the most vulnerable beneficiaries for early recovery support is the priority.
  • Very few issues with land reported from the 2010 floods. Numbers of TSSU respondents reporting land related issues are also very low (<200 families). Agreement from landlords / forced migration is the biggest issue identified so far.
  • District reports indicate that landlords do not perceive the Katcha houses with DRR as permanent shelters
  • SC coordinating and collecting feedback from organisations active in SE Sindh from 2010 and 2011 through the District meetings
  • Recommendation 1: Continue to monitor and refer any specific reports of land issues from TSSU and DFP to the relevant organisations / authorities.
  • Recommendation 2: HLP experts to present at a SC TWIG session before the next SC meeting with the aim to develop joint guidelines on land issues for approval from the cluster.
