Pakistan Floods 2010 - Executive Brief 26 August 2010
Beginning on 22 July 2010, Pakistan was struck by torrential monsoon rains, causing the most severe floods in living memory. According to official estimates to date, the floods have affected 17.2 million individuals, killed 1 539 people and damaged/destroyed 1.2 million homes. Evacuations and major new flooding have been reported in Sindh in recent days as a second wave of floods moves to the south of the province.
On 19 August, the United Nations Secretary-General called for a massive increase in the delivery of aid, resulting in the General Assembly adopting a consensus resolution urging for increased international support. To date, 60 percent of overall funding requirements (USD 460 million) outlined in the Pakistan Initial Floods Emergency Response Plan (PIFERP), launched on 11 August, have been met. The PIFERP, scheduled to be revised in mid-September, will provide an updated account of needs and funding requirements based on the results of assessments and cover early recovery needs over a six-month period. Assessment results to date point to damages of unprecedented scale to agriculture and a significant rise in funding requirements to address needs in the sector.
