Land Rights and Indus Floods 2010

(October 2010 - March 2011)

Oxfam GB have commissioned this study that aims to address the issue of land rights and security of tenure in the flood-affected regions and the impact of the floods and post-flood rehabilitation in magnifying or reducing the vulnerability of the land rights of the poor and socially marginalised. The absence of uniform title or enforcement of land claims and rights across different regions implies that floods, displacement and rehabilitation are likely to have had diverse impacts across and within affected districts.
