2017 IN REVIEW
In 2017, the Pakistan Humanitarian Strategic Plan focused on the returning displaced population, paying specific attention to vulnerable groups, and on the remaining 1.4 million registered Afghan refugees in Pakistan. Malnutrition among affected populations was prioritized, and the Humanitarian Country Team continued to strengthen preparedness for large-scale natural disasters.
Key achievements toward Strategic Objectives
In 2015, the response of the humanitarian community in Pakistan focused on people displaced from and returning to the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA). Nutrition programmes targeting malnourishment were also implemented across the country.
Key achievements include:
An average of 1.40 million IDPs (86 per cent of people in need) received food on a monthly basis.
360,000 people were provided with access to water for drinking, cooking and maintaining personal hygiene.
Stress counselling helps older IDPs to cope with difficult circumstances
Khayal Mera, 65, led a quiet life in her small village in the Tirah Valley in Khyber Agency, FATA, until April 2013 when conflict broke out between rival armed groups and security operations against non-state armed actors ensued.
