Crisis Prevention & Recovery
Our work in crisis prevention and recovery focuses on increasing the resilience of communities to natural and man-made disasters, mitigating their impact, and preventing conflict through rehabilitation and early recovery. We have implemented and monitored emergency situations and programmes on drought, flood and earthquake relief assistance, facilitated early recovery coordination, provided relief and rehabilitation for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and the communities in crisis affected areas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA).
Our goals include enhancing conflict prevention and disaster risk management capabilities; ensuring improved governance functions post crisis & restoring the foundation for local development. more
