ACTED has been present and registered in Pakistan since 1995, with active presence in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province, in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas, Sindh and Punjab provinces. ACTED Pakistan has been responding to emergencies caused by conflicts and natural disasters, notably focusing on food security and livelihood opportunities, while supporting their recovery and investing the development sectors.
Pakistan is one of the most disaster prone countries in the world and frequently experiences multiple disasters at any given time – flood, drought, and earthquake. Over the last few years, the Province of Sindh has been repeatedly affected by both floods and drought, further affecting the food security and livelihood opportunities.
The displacement of populations due to insecurity and natural disasters has been a major humanitarian concern for the past few years in Pakistan. The northwest of Pakistan and the regions bordering Afghanistan (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas) have been and are affected by large scale displacements due to the complex emergency. In 2014, over one million people were displaced from North Waziristan Agency and Khyber Agency and many remain in displacement or have recently returned.
In 2016, ACTED provided 1,153,580 crises-affected people with assistance and protection supporting their basic human right to life with dignity. 89,353 people were assisted through access to income generation and/or wealth creation activities for supporting their recovery and building their resilience. 26,629 individuals were assisted through disaster mitigation activities, while 297,047 crises affected people were provided integrated multi-sectoral assistance – shelter; water, sanitation and hygiene; food security and livelihood assistance.
