Pre-Crisis Market Mapping and Analysis (PCMMA) is a relatively new approach to conducting market assessments prior to emergencies in order to anticipate how markets will respond after a shock occurs. The PCMMA in Pakistan was the first of three pilot PCMMA assessments that the IRC is conducting in 2015 in order to generate learning that can be used to refine the approach and the PCMMA guidance manual, while also providing information to humanitarian actors in Pakistan to feed into strategic and operational emergency planning efforts.

Five years after Pakistan’s worst floods, thousands of displaced people continue to live makeshift lives in a slum on the outskirts of Karachi with the government doing little to help them.

The KP Reconstruction Program supports efforts by the Government of Pakistan to rebuild public infrastructure destroyed by conflict and the 2010 floods in the Malakand division of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The program focuses on rebuilding facilities for education, health, water, and sanitation and helps build the capacity of governmental departments that are instrumental in delivering these essential services. The project works closely the Provincial Reconstruction Rehabilitation and Settlement Authority (PaRRSA).
