Abstract


This  study  evaluates  the role,  capacity  and  performance of the local governance in disaster risk reduction (hereafter DRR) in Sindh. The study was conducted in randomly selected three districts namely Dadu, Thatta and Shahdadkot from the list of the most flood affected districts of Sindh with a view to understand and examine issues in local governance in DRR. The study used qualitative and quantitative tools. Empirical evidence shows poor performance of the government authorities in all phases of DRR. The local governments or DDMAs miserably failed in performing the role envisioned for them under the Hyogo Framework of Action (HFA hereafter) and the National Disaster Management Authority Act 2010. The findings further show that in all three districts, the government that could have responded to the floods, recovery and rehabilitation of flood affected people, reconstruction of infrastructure and people’s lives and their prosperities did not exist.
