"In the aftermath of the crisis of 2009, that struck Khyber-Pukhtunkhwa (KP) and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), the Post-Crisis Needs Assessment (PCNA) was activated in September 2010 by request of the Government of Pakistan (GoP) to assist in crisis management and mitigation. A final PCNA report was prepared and approved by the GoP as well as Provincial cabinet of Khyber-Pukhtunkhwa (KP) and shared with all the donor agencies. The PCNA is now partly funded under the World Bank led Multi Donor Trust Fund and activities have already started in some sectors.
The PCNA for KP and FATA was developed by the Asian Development Bank (ADB), European Union, World Bank, and United Nations, in collaboration with the provincial Government of KP and FATA secretariat with oversight by the Government of Pakistan. It was undertaken during an 11 month period ending in September 2010, before the impact of the devastating floods of 2010 could be assessed. Therefore the impact of the floods is not taken into account in the PCNA.
The goal of the PCNA is to provide a helpful, pragmatic, coherent and sequenced peace building strategy for the Government of Pakistan that delivers an agreed vision within 10 years. The Government approved the following vision for the future of KP and FATA: " There is an emerging peace, greater prosperity and tolerance in KP and FATA. A historic transformation is underway, where the voices of all people are being heard, the rule of law is deepening, and the State is increasingly accountable, providing equitable opportunities for better health, education and employment."
