The 2010 Flooding Disaster in Pakistan: An Opportunity for Governance Reform or Another Layer of Dysfunction?

This short summary, produced for the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in 2011, outlines the role of disaster response following the massive floods of 2010 as a possible opportunity to build trust between the Pakistan government and its civilian population. It compares the national structures in place for disaster response during the Kashmir earthquake of 2005 and the 2010 flooding. The summary findings are based on a longer unpublished paper on the subject.
