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.
