Proof in the Pudding

June 3, 2009 at 11:18 pm 1 comment

There are hundreds of NGOs, international NGOs (INGOs), and humanitarian agencies working in Pakistan including lots of UN agencies.  One of my largest responsibilities is pulling together the OCHA* situation report which summarizes the work of the humanitarian community on the ground in responding to the displacement of some 2.4 million Pakistanis from their homes and villages.

Here’s proof of some of my work.  This link takes you to my second sitrep, the first that has my name on it for accountability. http://www.reliefweb.int/rw/rwb.nsf/db900sid/MINE-7SN4JE?OpenDocument&rc=3&emid=AMMF-7HUDG8

The document is on OCHA’s website – ReliefWeb – an excellent resource for learning more information on any country and/or emergency.  The general ReliefWeb website on Pakistan is at http://www.reliefweb.int/rw/dbc.nsf/doc108?OpenForm&emid=AMMF  You can subscribe to the site to get regular updates.

Another good website is the new UN portal site which I have on my UN email signature – www.unportal.un.org.pk  Previous sitreps on this site can be found at http://115.186.134.22:35505/sites/UNPakistan/HC/Pages/HCT.aspx

Also check out the ICRC http://www.icrc.org/web/eng/siteeng0.nsf/html/pakistan!Open, MSF – http://www.msf.org/msfinternational/countries/asia/pakistan/index.cfm and the International Crisis Group (ICG) http://www.crisisgroup.org/home/index.cfm?id=1267  websites.

*OCHA – Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs

ps = I once again am listening to the dulcet voice of the mosque singer.  I’ve been (involuntarily) waking up early so many times, that one of these days I’m going to venture to the mosque and by my presence scare the mosque singer to silence. (hee, hee)
