Deadline for Completion
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.

Life-Saving and Time Critical Interventions to Support the Return Process in FATA
In early 2015 the Pakistani government launched a new plan to assist the returns of displaced families to FATA. Areas cleared by the military are “de-notified”, and declared safe for returns.
- This position paper clarifies the position and modalities for provision of humanitarian assistance to Pakistani returnees – who fled to Afghanistan (Khost, Paktika) following the military operation in North Waziristan which occurred between June 2014 and February 2016 - and focuses on conditions in areas of return as the Government of Pakistan (GoP) is leading the return process.
HCT Position on Returns from Afghanistan
Introduction The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 shifts the focus from managing disasters to managing risks. Such a shift requires a better understanding of risk in all its dimensions of hazards, exposure and vulnerability; a disaster risk governance that ensures disaster risk is factored into planning and development at all levels across all sectors as well as in disaster preparedness, rehabilitation, recovery and reconstruction; and cost-benefit analysis to support prioritization of investments in disaster risk reduction (DRR) for long-term resilience.

Effective post-disaster reconstruction programmes
This topic guide is a review of the state of play in post-disaster reconstruction. It builds on extensive research, literature and experience to date, most recently considering outputs from the 2015 Sendai Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR). It considers the status quo and puts forward alternative positions for facilitating effective reconstruction through a more seamless and re-planned approach.
