A. Introduction / Humanitarian situation
FATA remains one of the least developed regions in Pakistan having experienced man-made, as well as natural disasters for many years. From 2008 to 2014more than 5 million people were displaced from the FATA due to the security operations by the military against non-state armed groups.

The purpose of this report is to give an overview of the way the Drought Financing Facility is designed, including two proposed pilots in Zimbabwe and Pakistan.

Pakistan potentially faces a major climate change challenge. A concerted effort by the government and civil society at all levels is required to mitigate these threats.
a. In 2012, National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) and Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) agreed to develop and adopt Assessment and Monitoring Framework for Pakistan. Assessment Working Group (AWG), co-chaired by NDMA and OCHA, was mandated to develop and propose guidelines for this purpose. Subsequently, AWG in consultation with NDMA, Provincial Disaster Management Authorities (PDMAs), relevant government institutions, clusters and UN agencies drafted frame-work, tools and methodology for coordinated assessments.
The Operational Manual for the Pakistan Humanitarian Pooled Fund (PHPF) is issued by OCHA on behalf of the Humanitarian Coordinator (HC) and endorsed by the Advisory Board to set the general direction and programmatic focus of the Pakistan Humanitarian Pooled Fund (hereafter “PHPF” or “the Fund”), which was previously known as Emergency Response Fund (ERF).
Un enfant sur 10 présente un handicap. Les conflits armés et les catastrophes intensifient davantage les handicaps chez les enfants. Dans toute communauté affectée par une crise, les enfants et adultes handicapés font partie des plus marginalisés, et pourtant ils sont souvent exclus de l’aide humanitaire.
Les Principaux engagements en faveur des enfants dans l’action humanitaire constituent un cadre de travail destiné à fournir une aide humanitaire à tous les enfants, quelque soit leur statut ou leur situation.
One in every 10 children has a disability. Armed conflict and disasters further increase disabilities among children. Within any crisis-affected community, children and adults with disabilities are among the most marginalized, yet they often are excluded from humanitarian assistance.
