Earthquake - 8/10: Learning from Pakistan's experience
This document is a post-disaster evaluation of various aspects of response to the 2005 earthquake in Pakistan including the following: evacuation of casualties, management of camps, provision of health care, collation, transport and distribution of relief goods, coordination, etc. In the report, the Federal Relief Commission aims to identify what they did right and, more importantly, where they fell short so that they are better equipped next time. While this report is not a fully comprehensive assessment, it provides a good overview of NDMA's disaster response and the lessons it learned. The Federal Relief Commission is already trying to apply these lessons and the National Disaster Management Authority is one such lesson applied. One of the main goals of the report is to raise awareness of all decision-makers, responders and many other stakeholders who are involved in disaster management.
