0 . MAJOR CHANGES SINCE PREVIOUS VERSION OF THE HIP
The conflict in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) is classified by DG ECHO as a forgotten crisis. This already underfunded crisis has been aggravated by new waves of displacement. Since February 2013, UNHCR has registered 26,706 families (approximately 200 000 individuals) displaced from Khyber and Kurram agencies. These new displacements increase the already existing number of IDPs in the Northwest of Pakistan to over 1.25 million individuals.
It is expected that people will remain displaced for some time: with nearly 90% residing with host communities and 10% in camps (mainly Togh Sarai and New Durrani). The already limited resources of host communities therefore, continue to be severely impacted by previous and fresh displacements. According to UNOCHA only 50% of the required USD 327 million for humanitarian assistance in KP and FATA are available.
USD 160 million is required to address the most pressing needs of both 1.25 million displaced people and their host communities for the period June-December 2013.
DG ECHO has mobilised additional EUR 10 million to address unmet emergency needs for food and non-food items, protection, WASH5, shelter, nutrition and health care.
This amount based on the present humanitarian situation in Pakistan. Should the situation deteriorate, additional funds would be needed to address emerging unmet needs.
