Programme purpose: This revised country plan details scaled-up support for the disaster management programme of the Pakistan Red Crescent Society (PRCS) for 2011, while scaling down in areas of organizational development and coordination. The programmes of health and humanitarian values have also been closed in the country plan.
The main reason for this is the prioritization of efforts in the two ongoing operations of the 2005 Earthquake and Cyclone Yemyin, both expected to fully conclude by the end of 2011. The massive monsoon floods of 2010 was an extensive disaster that affected most parts of the country, sapping the resources of the National Society as it responded to the worst natural disaster in Pakistan’s history.
Financial situation: The total budget for 2011 has been revised to CHF 889,544.
