CDCP Project

In response to the 2010 flood crisis, the Government of Pakistan, in collaboration with the provincial Governments and the Italian Cooperation, DFID, USAID and the World Bank, set up the Citizens Damage Compensation Program (CDCP Phase I) to support affected households with cash distribution in an effort to recover and restore life in the provinces of Khyber Pukhtunkhwa, Sindh, Punjab, Balochistan, Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Kashmir. From its inception, the program has provided cash to 1.62 million families across Pakistan. The second phase of the CDCP II is currently underway, and is complementing the first phase by delivering cash to both previous and new beneficiaries, addressing and solving challenges arisen during the first phase. In December 2012, the Cabinet Division, NADRA, the Italian Cooperation and the World Bank jointly elaborated a project proposal concerning the tied component of CDCP II (corresponding to 1% of the total amount, i.e. 557.500 Euro), focusing on technical assistance activities, capacity building, procurement of goods and services and documentary film, in the areas of soil bio-engineering and database of natural disasters.   Further documentation can be found in theĀ Download section.
