Katchi Abadis (informal settlements) are home to some of the most vulnerable populations when it comes to the effects of climate change. With little or no access to clean water, health care, education, and other necessities, climate-related incidents can exacerbate their already challenging living conditions.

By identifying, and locating all Katchi Abadis in Karachi on a digitized map, for the first time, we are taking a critical step towards achieving socio-climatic justice and ensuring that vulnerable communities are not left behind.
