Inter-Agency Early Recovery Needs Assessment 2013
After the conflict and militancy crisis that hit the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), the Government of Pakistan, the FATA Secretariat and UN agencies felt the need for an accurate and reliable detailed needs assessment to understand the damages to the lives and properties of the people of FATA. In its continuation, UNDP, FATA Disaster Management Authority (FDMA) and 12 UN agencies decided to conduct a joint Interagency Early Recovery Needs Assessment (IAERNA) for the reintegration of IDPs to FATA, and to evaluate the damages that occurred during the disasters. UNDP and FDMA shared the IAERNA work plan with all stakeholders. A detailed field survey was conducted within a very short time and under high security risks in FATA.
