KEY DEVELOPMENTS

- On November 5, USAID Disaster Assistance Response Team (USAID/DART) staff traveled with USAID/Pakistan representatives to two villages in Balochistan Province severely affected by the earthquake.

- On November 6, USAID/OFDA transported 530 rolls of plastic sheeting from the USAID/OFDA warehouse in Dubai to Quetta, Balochistan Province. USAID/OFDA airlifted the plastic sheeting in response to an immediate need for emergency shelter identified by the USAID/DART in coordination with local Government of Pakistan (GOP) officials and the international relief community. The plastic sheeting, valued at approximately $260,000 including transportation costs, will help meet the shelter needs of approximately 2,650 earthquake-affected families.

- According to the USAID/DART, some humanitarian organizations have reported that the emergency humanitarian needs of affected populations assessed to date are nearly met. Relief organizations advocated for a focus on early recovery programming, particularly for transitional shelter and livelihoods. However, one relief agency recently identified an additional 1,000 earthquake-affected individuals unreached by assistance efforts to date.
