Gilgit-Baltistan:GB Disaster Management Authority Lacks Skilled Labor and Machinery

Posted on

Karachi (News): Gilgit-Baltistan, a region surrounded by gigantic mountains, is prone to natural disasters like landslides, earthquakes, avalanches and floods. It has also been experiencing glacier outburst and torrential monsoon rains for the last many years that add to the miseries and suffering of the dwellers. To respond to such disasters, a Gilgit-Baltistan Disaster Management Authority has been established to rescue and rehabilitate disaster-affected people.

But this organisation lacks skilled workers and machinery such as excavator machines and bulldozers. It has to be equipped with human and material resources. The rehabilitation process must be fair, transparent and quick. An effective mechanism of monitoring needs to be developed to ensure transparency in the processes and make sure that assistance is provided to the deserving people.
