Japan Backs Recovery Efforts in Flood-hit Pakistan

    Japan has contributed USD50 million to support early recovery work of the United Nations Development Program in flood-ravaged areas of Pakistan.

    The provinces of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh, Punjab and Gilgit Baltistan will benefit from the Japanese aid. UNDP will use the funding to rebuild livelihood, restore public services, establish early warning systems, and provide psychosocial counseling to women, children and young people, the elderly and those with special needs.
