On 7th September 2011, Government of Pakistan reached out for international assistance to prepare a humanitarian response to 2011 monsoon flooding. In response to that, a meeting was held on 8th September between UNRC/HC, OCHA and NDMA Chairman (along with his team) at PDMA Sindh’s office in Karachi to discuss the broad parameters of the Response Plan for the Floods in Pakistan in 2011 and the overall coordination mechanisms. In this discussion, four clusters were identified for Phase including food security, wash, health and shelter. It was also decided that cluster needs assessments and cluster response strategies will include elements of nutrition, protection and early recovery/ community restoration activities. Being the lead agency for community restoration, UNDP has put together this Rapid Needs Assessment (RNA) report within 48 hours to understand how it can provide support to the affectees in the most time-effective manner.
