Event Analysis: 2022 Floods in Swat Valley, Pakistan
(PDF, 28 Pages, 3.6 MB, English)

After the devastating floods in the Swat Valley in summer 2022, Switzerland proposed a flood analysis to the Pakistani government. The study is intended to provide specialists' insights into future flood hazards. The Swat Valley is prone to serious flooding. Lessons learned from the 2022 floods are important for reconstruction and disaster risk reduction in the densely populated mountain valley. The national and provincial disaster management authorities (NDMA and PDMA) and the National Centre of Excellence in Geology at the University of Peshawar were closely involved in the study. The study contains comprehensive findings and recommendations and forms a good basis for supporting the authorities and international organisations during the valley's reconstruction.
