GoP program assists more than 262,600 displaced households to return to FATA
Seasonal monsoon rains and flooding in August result in more than 160 deaths countrywide
USAID provides nearly $9.4 million in additional multi-sector humanitarian assistance
More than 262,600 conflict-displaced households in Pakistan voluntarily returned to areas of origin in Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) through a Government of Pakistan (GoP) returns program between March 2015 and September 2017, according to the UN.
Since January, more than 139,900 registered and undocumented Afghan refugees have returned to Afghanistan from Pakistan—a 55 percent decrease compared to the nearly 312,700 registered and undocumented returns during the same period in 2016.
USAID provided more than $46 million in FY 2017 to respond to the complex emergency in Pakistan. With USAID support, UN and non-governmental organization (NGO) partners provided emergency food assistance, as well as agriculture, nutrition, protection, shelter, and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) support, to conflict- and disaster-affected populations.
