This report illustrates the specific constraints and challenges humanitarian actors, and more specifically donor countries, face in providing effective relief, as well as shared features, which help to identify where improvements are needed in the global humanitarian system. It considers: (i) the crisis; (ii) its response; (iii) timeliness and constraints; (iv) coordination; (v) prevention, risk reduction, and disaster preparedness; (vi) humanitarian space; (vii) partnering with governments; and (viii) makes some recommendations on what donors could do. Based on interviews of humanitarian organizations and donor agencies, the report indicates that donors should more generously support disaster preparedness and early recovery, as well as help Pakistani NGOs access funds and play a bigger role in crisis response.
