Working with partners to embed CBFEWS across levels and scales in Pakistan
The master trainers engage with our partners Gilgit Baltistan Disaster Management Authority, Aga Khan Agency for Habitat (AKAH), WWF-Pakistan, and Buraq Integrated Solutions (BIS) to ensure timely repair, maintenance, sustainable operation, and post-disaster relief work. This percolates into ownership and knowledge among the community, which lends sustainability to the use of the system.
Based on the success of our CBFEWS pilots in Gilgit- Baltistan, the National Disaster Risk Management Fund (NDRMF) has supported AKAH and our private sector partner BIS to install CBFEWS at five sites in Chitral and Gilgit-Baltistan. We have customised the system for system efficiency and as per site requirements. We also completed technology transfer on manufacturing from Nepal to a local manufacturer, BIS. This has made the equipment economically accessible and sustainable for scaling purposes.
In the Damas and Shigar sites, key local stakeholders have agreed to share responsibility with us, WWF-Pakistan, BIS, and the AKAH for the repair of non-functional CBFEWS sites. Community representatives have committed to ensuring timely monitoring of the technology and regular communication with partners.
Along with our partners, we helped install CBFEWS at five sites in Chitral and Gilgit-Baltistan, completed technology transfer to a local manufacturer, and trained community caretakers from five sites in Gilgit-Baltistan
