Pakistan Humanitarian Response Plan 2009

In August 2008 Pakistan suffered a series of overlapping crises that led to substantial internal displacement and left hundreds of thousands in need of humanitarian assistance. These events have come at a time when Pakistan is reeling from the effects of the global food crisis, exacerbating an already precarious situation.

Unusually heavy monsoon rains and flash floods in early August 2008 affected over 300,000 people.Peshawar District in the North West Frontier Province (NWFP) and Rajanpur District in Punjab Province were particularly badly affected. Most of the immediate humanitarian needs of the floodaffected population have now been met. Families that remained close to their homes after the disaster have started to reconstruct their houses and rebuild their lives. As recovery and reconstruction is underway, attention is now given to livelihood support for the most vulnerable among those families, with a focus on agricultural activities. Overall, this caseload is estimated at less than 100,000 people.
