Under the "Building disaster resilience in Pakistan (BDRP)" Programme, FAO’s Geospatial Unit has been supporting the implementation of Pakistan’s National Disaster Risk Reduction Policy Project (OSRO/Pak/601/UK)in the Sindh and Punjab provinces.

The aim is to define more detailed agro-ecological zones, in the two provinces, starting from a previous work developed by NARC, Punjab and Sindh Ministries of Agriculture, Livestock, Co-operatives and Fisheries (MoALCFs) and Provincial Ministry of Forest and Environment (MoFEs).

Four days of AEZ training study for Punjab region have been conducted by Ece Aksoy, FAO GIS Expert, at the Center for Advanced Studies in Agriculture and Food Security, University of Agriculture of Faisalabad, last December.
And a second workshop, that involved the province of Sindh too, has been done during the current month, to finalize the produced maps.
