The latest UN OCHA Pakistan Humanitarian Situation Report, June 26, 2009, now at the Key Documents page, here.  Highlights include:

  • The influx of large numbers of IDPs in certain camps has created the need for suitable land to establish new IDP camps as well as a corresponding need to decongest some existing sites.
  • Congestion in a number of camps is impacting living standards.
  • Additional humanitarian partners are needed to provide and distribute food to camps and schools.
  • There is a need to ensure the availability of fortified blended food for the supplementary feeding programme.
  • Returning IDPs need maize seed and fertilizer to have a bumper kharif (maize) crop to compensate for the winter rabi (wheat) crop which was not harvested
