Rukhsana relied on the support of her extended family when her husband was laid off from his job at a factory in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. With support from the UNDP Community Resilience initiative she received training in tailoring and embroidery, and she also learned valuable entrepreneurial skills. Due to skills enhancement efforts, household incomes of more than 4,000 people have increased by 15 percent in Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA).
 
In the second edition of Development Matters, we are pleased to share such stories of transformational change achieved by communities in collaboration with our development partners. Our focus on strengthening community resilience contributes to longer term development goals, such as livelihood creation, and increases the legitimacy of state institutions through improved public services.
