PHPF - Annual Report 2017



From 2015 to 2017, based on the Government’s comprehensive returns plan, 94 per cent of displaced families have been assisted to return to their place of origin in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA). The return program was designed to ensure wellbeing and provide reintegration opportunities for the returning population at their place of their origin. These locations re-quired the refurbishment of all basic services, including livelihoods, shelter, governance, security, rule of law, environment and social dimensions, to encourage the constructive reintegration of displaced populations.

The disbursement of funds through PHPF has safeguarded the provision of the most critical, lifesaving and time sensitive hu-manitarian needs to the people through principled, timely, and coordinated response, as well as ensuring complementarity with other funding mechanisms. PHPF has contributed to promoting the sustainability of returns, opened opportunities to engage with the local authorities to improve collective collaboration, and helped create a common platform to advocate for better collaborative assessments and monitoring in FATA.

The Fund gives the Humanitarian Coordinator a greater ability to direct resources to the most critical humanitarian needs as identified in the 2017 Humanitarian Strategic Plan, and in 2018 will augment and support the provision of services on unmet humanitarian needs under the FATA transition Framework.
