Afghanistan: Emergency Earthquake Response Plan (Jul - Sep 2022) - Summary of Emergency Needs, People Reached and Funding Requirements - as of 14 July 2022

On 22 June, a 5.9 magnitude earthquake struck south eastern Afghanistan, leading to wide-scale destruction across already vulnerable districts in Paktika and Khost provinces. In addition to loss of life and devastating injury,  the earthquake has resulted in the destruction of critical infrastructure -- including homes, health facilities, schools and water networks -- leaving thousands vulnerable to further harm. The multi-sectoral Emergency Earthquake Appeal targets approximately 362,000 people living in high intensity impact areas (MMI 5+)*. A total of $110.3 million** is urgently required to frontload life-saving response activities over the course of the next three months (July-September). As of 14 July, approximately $44 million has been pledged for the response. The information presented in the dashboard is based on best available confirmed data and will adjust as further verified assessment and response information is received.
