KEY DEVELOPMENTS

* Water has receded in most flood-affected areas of Balochistan, Punjab, and Sindh provinces, according to the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). However, standing water in some areas of Jacobabad, Qamber Shahdadkot, and Dadu districts in Sindh Province continues to prevent returns and affect livelihoods.

  • As of March 25, recent clashes in the Bagh Maidan area of Tirah Valley in Khyber Agency, FATA, had displaced more than 5,200 families—or approximately 40,600 people—according to the FATA Disaster Management Authority (FDMA). Displaced families are reportedly moving toward neighboring Kurram Agency, as well as Kohat, Hangu, and Peshawar districts in KPk Province. Local authorities estimate that up to 10,000 families from several villages in Bagh Maidan could be affected by the clashes. The FDMA is registering displaced families and providing food, shelter support, and relief commodities to affected populations.

  • To date in FY 2013, the USG has provided nearly $77 million for humanitarian activities in Pakistan, of which nearly $67 million targets populations affected by the complex emergency. The remaining $10 million supports humanitarian activities benefitting flood- affected families in Pakistan’s southern provinces.
