Fresh displacement from NWA to Kohat

Military operation causes displacement of 470,000 individuals from North Waziristan Agency FATA to settled areas of KP. Approximately 2,000 individuals have registered in district Kohat. Around 7,000 individuals have crossed district Kohat to Peshawar and Punjab province.

On request of UNOCHA-Kohat office, JEN participated in a rapid needs assessment of displaced people from NWA in district Kohat. Purpose of the needs assessment was to count the number of displaced people arrived in Kohat and to know their most urgent humanitarian needs.

District authorities have established two registration points to record number of displaced people from NWA. At 1st registration point individuals residing in district Kohat are recorded while on 2nd registration displaced People crossing district Kohat towards Peshawar and province Punjab are recorded. 

PDMA (provincial Disaster management authority) has also revised its guidelines for humanitarian organizations to work with the affected people. PDMA has remarkably expedited its NOC processing process. It will make the affected people to get timely humanitarian assistance.

The needs are very high of those displaced people and Humanitarian response is slow due to security situation of the region. Still many organizations and UN are on ground to support those vulnerable communities.
