Humanitarian Operational Plan for KP and FATA
There has been significant population movement in Pakistan’s north-western areas of KP and FATA since July 2008. This is due to the Government’s security operations against non-state armed groups and sectarian violence. At the peak of the crisis in April/May 2009, nearly 3 million people fled their areas of origin. The majority of internally displaced people have voluntarily returned to their homes since July 2009, but more than 742,000 people remained displaced as of October 2012. There are significant humanitarian interventions under way, but many humanitarian needs remain unmet.
The Humanitarian Operational Plan for KP/FATA is a reference document for humanitarian agencies and donors. It outlines humanitarian needs according to assessments, strategic objectives and operational response to the complex emergency in KP and FATA from January to December 2012.
Early Recovery Framework for 2011 Floods
In August 2011, heavy monsoon rains triggered flooding in Balochistan and Sindh Provinces, including some areas that were affected by the devastating floods of 2010. A joint UN-Government assessment found more than 5 million people with critical humanitarian needs following the 2011 floods. The UN and the Government launched the Pakistan Floods 2011 Early Recovery Framework in February 2012 to cover longer-term early recovery needs in the flood-affected areas, seeking nearly US$440 million to help communities become more resilient to future disasters.
