What gender issues emerged from the Pakistan Floods of 2010? The purpose of this United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) Rapid Gender Assessment Needs Report is to substantiate the findings of the preliminary report (4 September 2010). This assessment draws on surveys of households and community groups, secondary literature produced by various organisations on the impact of the floods, media briefs and reports, as well as 141 case studies from across Pakistan immediately following the flooding. Among the findings is that the humanitarian community and development sector are failing to incorporate the women affected by the floods in relief programme planning, and are unable to anticipate their needs adequately.
