  1. Executive Summary

The revised 2013 Development Operational Plan (DOP) was published on 14 November 2013 and articulated the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies’ (IFRC) continuous support to the Pakistan Red Crescent Society (PRCS) in 2013. The revision reflected the transition of the National Society (NS) from emergency response of mega-disasters from 2005-2012 to longer-term development planning with a strong focus towards enhancing the sustainability of the NS. The transition to redefine working modalities and objectives is a process the PRCS and its Partners are working through at present.

Relief activities and the integrated recovery programme (IRP), under the Pakistan Monsoon Floods Appeal 2010 (MDRPK006), have dominated IFRC’s support to the PRCS since 2010. Most of the remaining IRP activities were concluded by the end of April 2013 and the appeal was closed at the end July 2013. The revised 2013 DOP therefore focused on capacity building and long-term sustainability.
