The Humanitarian Response to the Pakistan Floods: Government Response to the Committee's Seventh Report of Session 2010–12

Over the course of the 2010 monsoon season, Pakistan experienced the worst floods in its history. The UK was at the forefront of the international community’s response to the disaster and the first major country to come to Pakistan’s support in significant scale. Through the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), the total humanitarian and early recovery response of £134 million is the largest ever mounted by the UK Government. Emergency relief priorities included shelter, food, health and water and sanitation. FCDO is also supporting Pakistan to recover quickly from the floods in the key areas of agriculture/livelihoods and education.
