On 15 December 2022, ALNAP, Humanitarian Outcomes and the UK Humanitarian Innovation Hub hosted a webinar which heard from and engaged with researchers, members of Pakistani civil society, humanitarian funders and responders as they explored a number of critical issues:

  • The role, response, and coordination model of the international humanitarian system in middle-income countries like Pakistan, where substantial government, civil society, and disaster management capacity are leading the response.
  • Financing considerations, including the relatively low levels of humanitarian funding, and the role of climate, anticipatory and IFIs (i.e. the World Bank).
  • Poor preparedness and risk reduction efforts despite recurring floods in the region and considerable investment; and the implications this has for future funding of this kind both in Pakistan and other countries impacted by climate change.
