The UK stands shoulder-to-shoulder with Pakistan as it faces the consequences of the recent devastating flooding. The UK Government provided significant support to Pakistan in response to the 2010 crisis, providing £81 million in humanitarian assistance. While the scale of the recent flooding is greater than 2010, Pakistan is better prepared and more capable in responding to complex emergencies than it was previously.

Overall, since 2010, the UK has provided £342 million in humanitarian assistance to Pakistan supporting over 8 million people following natural disasters and conflict through water and sanitation; livelihoods support; protection mechanisms and shelter.
