There is national policy and strategy for disaster reduction, particularly there is a Federal Flood Commission at Islamabad which is responsible for policy making, planning and coordination with
different provinces and agencies for implementation of the policy. Federal Flood Commission (FFC) was established in 1977 to provide the necessary infrastructure at the federal level to help the provinces in meeting the technical and financial resources required to carry out the Flood Mitigation Measures.

During the recent past FFC has played a unique role in remodeling the flood mitigation policy of the country on modern lines with the help of the foreign loan mostly obtained from Asian Development bank (ADB).
