Project Description

FAO started recovery and reconstruction operations. Nearly three-quarters of Pakistan's labor force works in the informal sector and their contribution to GDP is estimated at a significant 37 percent. Having no control over production processes, informal women workers are vulnerable and dependent on those supplying them with work, often middlemen.

FAO, ILO, and UN WOMEN intend to establish a baseline of the vulnerabilities, living conditions, and socio-economics situation of targeted peasant communities and small landowners in districts Dadu and Mirpurkhas.

APEX deployed 04 field teams for primary data collection and a separate team for qualitative data collection in Dadu and Mirpurkhas. Data was collected from 576 households (home-based workers and Hari's), 12 FGDs with rural communities, and 42 KIIs with local stakeholders, landlords, hari, research institutions, government, training institutes, civil society organizations, representatives of social safety schemes, producers, and trade unions, etc.
