“Stream” 2013-2015 Pakistan

Italy’s aid commitment to Pakistan is linked to the poverty ratio of the Country and is part of the
approach pursued by the international community in regional fragile context, with a focus on
peace-building in the border areas with Afghanistan, which have been suffering from conflict
since 2009 and is periodically hit by natural disasters, like the floods that devastated large
swathes of Pakistan’s territory since 2010. Humanitarian aid and recovery programs are therefore
an important part of Italian Cooperation’s portfolio in Pakistan.
