Summary

Pakistan is still struggling to recover from the floods and more investment is needed to address the ongoing humanitarian crisis to help speed up recovery, particularly in the South of Pakistan.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

One year on and Pakistan is still struggling, as the devastation has affected nearly 20 million people, killing nearly 2000 and causing economic losses of £3.5bnIts. The sheer scale and a lack of local capacity, has continued to hinder recovery. Many local NGOs in Sindh, the country’s south, had a lack of trained humanitarian staff to lead the relief operation when the floods struck. Currently, hundreds of thousands continue to live in temporary shelters and many are still surviving on food aid.

How will this project solve this problem?

Training Pakistanis in the coordination of humanitarian activities, humanitarian practice and principles and security management. Training in water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and working with the global WASH Cluster to improve coordination.

Potential Long Term Impact

At least 75% of participants will be from local aid agencies in Pakistan. By training local aid workers, we are building capacity and sustainability on the ground and leaving a legacy of improved skills and knowledge.
