Host Nation Support Guidelines for Foreign Assistance to Pakistan During Disasters

The Host Nation Support Guidelines were developed in collaboration between NDMA and a project team of the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center, with the support of the Australian High Commission, Islamabad. The Guidelines for Pakistan focuses on information and actions to reduce response time in large-scale disasters that may require foreign assistance should local capacity be overwhelmed.

The Guidelines are divided into eleven sections and annexes to provide guidance for all groups of stakeholders relevant to their role and the operating environment.
