About

Overview

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), United Nations Development Program (UNDP), United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and World Food Programme (WFP) have established a Joint Programme entitled "Community Resilience and Recovery Support to FATA’s Returning Internally Displaced Persons”. The Joint Programme aims to complement the recovery efforts of the Government of Pakistan, in line with the FATA Sustainable Returns and Rehabilitation Strategy (SRRS), by building the resilience of the returning IDPs.

Under this programme, UN agencies will provide targeted support to 200,000 families to improve their livelihoods and food security and have better access to basic services, infrastructure and social cohesion. It will also enable the FATA Secretariat to strengthen its governance, law and order, service delivery and citizen engagement with a focus on the human recovery needs of the returning IDPs.

 

The Joint UN Programme on Support on Community Resilience and Recovery Support to FATA’s Returning Internally Displaced Persons encompasses:

The living conditions of 200,000 families in priority return areas of FATA will be improved through joint UN efforts over a period of 2 years in partnership with the FATA Secretariat and other stakeholders.        

 

The Joint UN Programme of Support on Community Resilience and Recovery Support to FATA’s Returning Internally Displaced Persons aims to achieve the following outcomes:

  •       Outcome 1: Improved Food Security, Livelihoods and Jobs (WFP, FAO and UNDP);
  •       Outcome 2: Restoration of Basic Services and Infrastructure (UNICEF, WFP and UNDP);
  •       Outcome 3: Governance and social cohesion (UNDP); and
  •       Outcome 4: Cross-Cutting Themes (Gender, community resilience, capacity development, disaster risk reduction, vulnerability and persons with special needs)

 

Assistance Strategy

The goal of the Joint UN Programme on Community Resilience and Recovery Support to FATA’s Returning Internally Displaced Persons is to minimize the challenges that will be faced by returnee families in their resettlement and recovery. This will enable them to resume normal lives by gaining benefits from community-based initiatives supporting the rehabilitation and reconstruction of basic services and livelihoods along with other interventions related to health, education and governance. The Joint Programme outcomes are also in line with the Sustainable Return and Rehabilitation Strategy launched by the Government of Pakistan in 2015.

 

Governance

The Joint UN Programme of support on Community Resilience and Recovery Support to FATA’s Returning Internally Displaced Persons is managed as a Joint Programme with both parallel and pass-through funding modalities. UNDP has been nominated as the Convening Agency. The Joint Programme is implemented jointly by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), (under the pass-through funding modality through the MPTF Office) and World Food Programme (WFP). The programmatic and financial accountability rests with the Participating UN Organisations, which manage their respective components of the Joint Programme.

At country level a Joint UN technical team has been formed to coordinate the implementation of the Joint Programme.
