Pakistan’s resilience to disasters one year on from the floods

The floods that hit Pakistan in 2010 were the worst in the country’s
history. The humanitarian response achieved remarkable successes in
minimising the immediate loss of life and providing relief to millions of
people. However, it could have been better: more than 800,000 families
remain without permanent shelter and more than a million people remain
in need of food assistance. These unmet needs must be addressed as a
matter of urgency.
