KEY FINDINGS

  • 111 temporary settlements hosting 16,926 individuals (2,870 families) have been identified in Ghotki, Larkana, Qamber Shahdadkot and Sukkur.

  • 95% are spontaneous settlements and no instances of planned tent sites were found in these districts.

  • Unlike the three most affected districts in Sindh (Jacobabad, Kashmore and Shikarpur), many people in Qamber Shadadkot remain in temporary settlements (1,901 families). The emergency situation continues to become more serious as floodwater from Balochistan and North Sindh drains through the district.

  • In Qamber Shadadkot, almost all temporary settlements are located in four Union Councils; Quba Saeed Khan, Jamali, Hazar Wah and Aitbar Khan Chandio.

  • Over 1,000 families have been displaced at least once, relocating from other temporary settlements, primarily due to further flooding.
