Pakistan Earthquake Relief & Reconstruction

In response to the October 8, 2005 earthquake in the Kashmir region of Pakistan, Synergy was contracted by UNDP to produce a Core Development Assistance Database (DAD) for the Economic Affairs Division (EAD) of the Ministry of Finance in Pakistan to facilitate aid management, coordination, transparency and accountability in the wake of the donor response to the Pakistan earthquake.

After successful implementations of the DAD in four of the Tsunami affected countries, Synergy was called upon again to rapidly produce and deploy the software needed to track billions of dollars in funding. An initial needs assessment mission was conducted in November, 2005. A contract with UNDP was signed on January 30, 2006. Since this time, a pilot DAD was launched and on-site taining has begun.
