Welcome to IC Pakistan
Intercooperation (IC) is a Swiss Foundation for Development and International Cooperation with the Head Office in Bern, Switzerland. It is a non-government, not-for-profit international organization working in development cooperation across four continents with an aim to alleviate poverty in rural areas. In Pakistan IC has an independent status of an International Development Organization. IC in Pakistan is represented by a Delegation Office of the Intercooperation worldwide. Intercooperation completed 25 years of operation in 2007 with a delightful set of experiences and institutional learning to its credit.
IC has been actively engaged in the development sector right from its inception in 1982. In Pakistan, Kalam Integrated Development Project was the first project mandated to the newly founded organization by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). Since then, IC has remained engaged in rural development at various levels with several stakeholders in the sector including technical themes such as agriculture, livestock, forestry and non formal education, with the communities together with the government, the civil society and the private sector.
During three decades in Pakistan, IC has implemented over twenty development projects, particularly in natural resource management, most of which were implemented on behalf of SDC. IC is consistently involved in activities related to climate change and related disaster risk reduction. Most of such interventions have been in agriculture, water management and forestry, particularly focusing on arid and flood prone areas in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The interest of IC on this topic is to mainstream both adaptation to and mitigation of climate change as a component of sustainable development, when climate change is a relevant factor. Currently IC is actively engaged in eight districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province in Pakistan.
