Applying TAMD in Pakistan: Rainwater harvesting, resilience & gender

Authors: Fawad Khan, Atta ur Rehman, Ajaz Ahmed

Women and girls who used to spend a major portion of their day physically carrying water over steep slopes in inclement weather, now grow vegetables for their families and rear animals for additional income, and their daughters go to school. This case study generates evidence on adaptation and the socio-economic benefits of rooftop rainwater harvesting with a gendered perspective. It is an application of the TAMD framework to evaluate climate-resilient development in a post-disaster reconstruction programme.
