GoP continues FATA repatriation program
USAID/OFDA supports floods response in Chitral
USAID/FFP provides additional $27 million for food assistance
As of September 24, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reported that more than 118,000 families had voluntarily returned to Khyber Agency, North Waziristan Agency (NWA), and South Waziristan Agency (SWA) in Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) as part of a Government of Pakistan (GoP) repatriation program that began in March.
Monsoon rains that began in mid-July, combined with ongoing glacial melt, caused floods in northern Pakistan, severely affecting Chitral District in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPk) Province and parts of western Punjab and northern Sindh provinces.
In FY 2015, the U.S. Government (USG) provided nearly $93 million to respond to the complex emergency in Pakistan. USAID/OFDA provided nearly $14 million, including $5.7 million for Responding to Pakistan’s Internally Displaced (RAPID)—a response fund used countrywide to respond to disaster- and conflict-related displacement. USAID/FFP provided $57 million for food assistance in Pakistan, while State/PRM provided more than $22 million to support health and protection programs for conflicted-affected Pakistanis.
