Based on a panel survey conducted in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan, this study analyzes the extent to which households recovered from damage due to floods that hit the country in 2010. With regard to the initial recovery of productive assets, households that experienced heavier damage to their assets had recovered to a lesser extent. After one year, recovery had continued, but traditional leaders and those whose houses were damaged by the floods experienced a deceleration in the recovery speed. The recovery of productive assets was affected by concerns for house reconstruction, reflecting the tribal value of preserving honor in conflict-ridden situations.
