  1. Introduction

Pakistan suffers from political instability, the constant threat of war with its larger neighbour India and the overspill of conflict from Afghanistan.

This staunchly Islamic country of 184 million people is also prone to large-scale natural disasters, including earthquakes, floods and drought.

A strong earthquake struck northern Pakistan in 2005, killing more than 75,000 people.

It caused massive damage to buildings, roads and bridges and left three million homeless just as winter was setting in.
