The United Nations and its humanitarian partners in Pakistan will require nearly US$460 million over the coming weeks to meet the urgent needs of millions of people, according to the Initial Floods Emergency Response Plan for Pakistan launched by the United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator John Holmes on the 11 August.

The Government of Pakistan estimates that more than 14 million people have been affected by the floods which have devastated large parts of the country from north to south. Shelter is an urgent priority and $105 million is required to provide tents or plastic sheeting, as well as basic household goods, for an initial target of over two million people. More than 65,000 tents have already been delivered, covering at least 450,000 people.
