Crisis Prevention and Recovery

  • This programme focuses on three agencies of FATA (North and South Waziristan and Khyber), aiming to provide sustainable livelihood opportunities leading to long-term economic growth of FATA, mobilizing communities, entrepreneurs and local authorities, to identify and invest in areas of high demand and potential to sustain return.

  • Fostering Resilient Communities in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa

    The project aims to promote peace building and social cohesion in crisis affected areas through the rehabilitation of community basic infrastructure and to improve access of affected communities to basic services and facilities by restoring and rehabilitating community physical infrastructure.

  • The 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 Programme

    More 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.

  • China South-South Cooperation Assistance Fund for the Recovery Project in FATA and Balochistan

    The Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) region is the most marginalized region of Pakistan in terms of economic and social indicators followed by Balochistan province. Both FATA and Balochistan are also amongst regions most vulnerable to natural disasters. Located along the Pak-Afghan border, FATA region has been affected by conflict for over a decade, leading to displacement of over 300,000 families (approx. 1.6m people, of which 70% are women and children). The Government of Pakistan launched phased return of the Temporarily Dislocated Persons (TDPs) in 2015, whereby over 270,000 families have returned to their areas of origin. Over the years, FATA has seen widespread destruction of houses, farms, livestock, private and public infrastructure (water supply, roads, schools, health centres).
