The floods of 2010 and 2011 accentuated the need to enhance the capacities of federal, provincial, district and local government authorities as well as communities to manage, coordinate, deliver and monitor flood relief and response activities. In July 2011, DTCE launched the "Flood Affected Communities Engagement for Recovery" (FACER) Program that was intended to supplement its existing relief and early recovery operations in the flood affected areas. DTCE addressed all three strategic level objectives/outputs with major focus on its strategic outputs 1 (Capacities of local institutions and flood-affected communities for recovery and protection of rights restored) whereas the strategic outputs 2 (Basic and critical community infrastructure and services restored) and 3 (livelihoods of vulnerable of flood affected people stabilized and restored) were also addressed through community level projects by leveraging local government counterpart funding available in the form of reserved development funds with district governments and tehsil administrations.
