• Humanitarian partners and Government of Pakistan authorities are working to finalise the Revised Response Plan to provide humanitarian assistance in Sindh and Balochistan provinces following the monsoon rains and subsequent floods that occurred in August and September. A recently completed joint UN-Government Multi-Sectoral Needs Assessment (MSNA) revealed that more than 5 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance in the two provinces.

• Provision of shelter and rehabilitation of damaged infrastructure and livelihoods of people returning to their homes in areas where floodwaters have receded are key priorities for humanitarian partners.
