Speed, effectiveness and predictability
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 Newly Merged District of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa [formerly Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA)].
UNDP Pakistan works to support communities as they recover from displacement, insecurity and natural disaster and the burden of hosting thousands of temporarily displaced families and refugees. Recognising the critical role of young people in building secure societies led to growing focus on empowerment through education, recreation, skills development and employability support.
