National Consultant for Baseline Survey for Asian Development Bank’s Urban Resilience Fund in Pakistan

National Consultant for Baseline Survey for Asian Development Bank’s Urban Resilience Fund in Pakistan


Project Scope


Asian Development Bank (ADB) established a multi-country Urban Climate Change Resilience Trust Fund (UCCRTF), also referred to as the Urban Resilience Fund (URF), in 2013. Pakistan is amongst the targeted countries of the URF. The URF is helping medium-sized, fast-growing cities better plan and design infrastructure using urban resilience principles, and scale up investments against disasters and other climate impacts. In Pakistan, the targeted cities include Sahiwal and Sialkot (Punjab province) and Abbotabad, Mardan and Peshawar (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province).


Daira, an international development consulting firm, is providing the Monitoring and Evaluation support to the program. As part of the M&E services, a household and city level baseline survey for each of the selected program cities was commissioned by Daira across all program countries. In Pakistan, Daira contracted AiD to deliver these services.


As the National Consultant, AiD was responsible for all aspects of data collection for the identified city

baseline surveys. The Baseline survey comprised of a Household Survey and a City Profile baseline. The services included:

  • Designing and extraction of sample for household baseline survey;
  • Identification, contracting, training and supervision of the local enumerators to administer the Household and city level survey in each selected city;
  • Supervising all aspects of the data collection, including checks on the data collection and management quality;
  • Manage all logistical, administrative, financial and legal aspects of the data collection process;


The survey was carried out using an android-based enumeration software developed by Daira. A total of 500 household surveys were carried out in targeted cities. Moreover, data collection from public sector officials of each city was done for the city profile development.
