a proper interface between PDMA,
humanitarian partners and UN agencies.

of schools by IDPs, unavailability of
winterization facilities, law and order
situation in the affected areas, vulnerability
of pregnant women, children, elderly and
lack of a sanitation and drainage system.
The recommendations of the workshop
are: GoP to urgently launch an appeal to
the international community for technical
and financial assistance. PDMA, DDMAs
and UN agencies to effectively coordinate
need assessments as well as relief
deliveries to the affected population. To
provide also assistance to Ghotki and
Qamber Shahdadkot
NHN believes that there is a huge gap
between actual needs and the current
food, shelter and health relief provided so
far, which should be filled.
PHF’s eighteen members are engaged in
the 2012 floods response. PHF is not facing
any issue in terms of accessibility of the
respected areas.
PHF believes that district level coordination
should be strengthened and that the
capacity of the government focal person is
lacking and their capacity should be
strengthened.
WHO is establishing ARI centers. An
increase of different diseases is expected
due to the winter. There is a shortage of
medicines in flood affected districts.



19 schools are occupied by IDPs in the
district Jacobabad. It is planned to evacuate
the schools and provide them with return
packages. In this regard the willingness of
the IDPs and the situation in villages of
origin should be taken into account, and
premature and forced evacuation
prevented. Humanitarian organizations are
keen to discuss with concerned authorities
and support returns if adequate solutions
are found for IDPs. Tent cities are the least
preferred option.. WFP is ready to provide
food assistance.
