A disastrous earthquake hit the North-Western region of Pakistan in October 2005 and badly damaged roads and water supply infrastructure. IMS conducted a mission for needs assessment in the affected area and prepared a project proposal for rehabilitation of rural water supply facilities and damaged roads.

The selected components have been implemented by the Pakistani earthquake authority ERRA and were financed under a debt for development swap programme under the frame of German development cooperation.

A Technical Audit was performed by IMS after implementation of the works in order to assess the quality of the works and the eligibility of the implemented project components in the roads and the water supply/sanitation sector.
