  • Disaster Risk Management SupportDisaster Risk Management SupportDue to the crucial need for mainstreaming disaster risk reduction in Pakistan, the project was initiated to support the government and other stakeholders in drafting a five year programme under the UN One Programme-II (OP-II). The project aims to formulate a disaster risk management programme and provide operational and technical support to the national, provincial and district disaster management authorities.

  • FATA Recovery ProgrammeFATA Recovery ProgrammeThe Early Recovery Assistance Framework (ERAF) is designed to effectively respond to the needs of the dislocated population of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), with primary focus on restoring social, physical, institutional and economic systems in the region.

  • Youth Empowerment ProgrammeYouth Empowerment ProgrammeMore than 31% of Pakistanis are aged between 15 and 29 years. This ‘youth bulge’ provides unique opportunities for the country’s social and economic uplift whereby the latent potential of young people can be harnessed by providing openings for growth and personal development. Unfortunately, lack of youth focussed development in Pakistan has made young people vulnerable to violence and conflict, a situation exacerbated by the volatile security situation in the country.


Our work in crisis prevention and recovery focuses on increasing the resilience of communities to natural and manmade disasters, mitigating their impact, and preventing conflict through rehabilitation and early recovery. Pakistan has experienced recurring disasters in recent years with militancy in border areas and two consecutive floods. As the country attempts to recover from these crises, UNDP provides the critical link between immediate humanitarian efforts and long-term development goals through early recovery coordination and capacity building.
