Building and Construction Improvement Program (BACIP) works under the patronage of Aga Khan Planning and Building Service, Pakistan. It was initiated in 1997 in partnership with the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) with a vision that “The visual, physical and emotional impact of a decent home can light the spirit of human endeavor. A proper home can provide the bridge across that terrible gulf between utter poverty the possibility of a better future.” BACIP was subsequently funded by other donors including USAID, the UNDP under its Global Environment Facility-Small Grants Program (GEF-SGP) Austrian Development Agency (ADA), European Union, Climate Care Trust Limited United Kingdom, The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and, Japan Social Development Fund (administered by the World Bank). The funding has helped in scaling-up and replicating 124380 BACIP EE-HI products covering almost 10 percent of households in the northern areas and the Chitral region.
