Nature has gifted Pakistan with mountainous regions like Karakorum and Himaliya, rivers, plains, deserts and presence of coastal areas make the country unique and one of its type round the globe. Four seasons comprising winter, summers, spring and autumn. Heavy rains in monsoons and earthquakes are feature which cannot be ignored causing damage to human life and properties. This situation calls for a quick response to disaster management. JEC’s contributions to disaster management are obvious from following examples:

• Pakistan Floods 2010, Damage and Need Assessment – experts of JEC became member of team formed by Asian Development Bank to assess damage in water and sanitation sector.

• Village Development Plan of Imran Khan Foundation (IKF) – JEC joined hands and walked shoulder to shoulder with Imran Khan to provide shelter to homeless from Floods 2010.

• Engro Model Village – another example for providing shelter to homeless from Floods 2010 at Kot Addu. Design of village, infrastructure, community buildings, sewage treatment through Constructed Wetlands were included in the project.

• Macro Planning of Langerpura Satellite Town – 8th October 2005, Pakistan faced a worst Earthquake in history. Maximum damage occurred in AJ & K region. Thousands lost their lives and millions were displaced. In an effort to reconstruct, JEC carried out Macro Planning of satellite town near Muzaffarabad.

• Projects with ERRA –China International Electric and Water Corporation (CWE) engaged JEC as designers for AJ & K Urban development project for rehabilitation and reconstruction of damages caused in 2005.
