Khyber Pakhtunkhwa: Winter contingency plan 2019-2020

This report addresses the occurrence of natural hazards which include; floods, flash floods, seismic activity, along the mountainous north and west, and land sliding as well as prolonged spells of impoverishing droughts in the arid zones of the province. The occurrence of such disasters cause massive losses in lives and livelihood, which tend to retard economic growth. Reactive disaster management and emergency response system exacerbates hazard impact.

The provincial government has initiated a process of introducing proactive preparedness regime under guidelines established by the national disaster management  authority for streamlining response at provincial and district levels in coordination with all relevant stakeholders. This process, i.e. contingency planning for major hazards, shall enable initiation of requisite mitigation measures and to under-take a coordinated response to minimize loss of life and property in the events of disasters. It is stakeholders’ inclusive exercise that takes stock of what exists in terms of plans and resources, hazards analysis to determine the likely relief caseloads as a planning assumption.
