Floods in Pakistan
After three months of severe flooding across the country, a UNDP SURGE planning team was deployed to assist the UNDP Pakistan country office to realign its programmes to address emerging and urgent priorities, such as helping affected communities recover from the disaster. To help with the rollout of the new programming, a total of 30 experts were sent to the country to provide support in the areas of programming, coordination and communications.
UNDP has launched a US$120 million early recovery programme to help communities affected by the recent floods across 39 most affected districts to start to rebuild their lives. The one-year programme, part of a broader UN emergency response plan, aims at restoring livelihoods through job creation, repairing basic community infrastructure, and strengthening local government offices to get public services running again.
