MOU signed between FDMA and ICRC for the welfare of FATA population
FATA Disaster Management Authority (FDMA) and International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to collaborate in various areas of interest e.g strengthening coordination mechanism, provision of relief and response, health emergency support, capacity building in areas of mine risk education and first aid. The MoU is initially signed for a period of two years which could be further extended if the need arises.
Under the framework of cooperation, both FDMA and ICRC agreed that the coordination mechanism will be strengthened for the benefit of the population of FATA affected by disasters. ICRC will also provide technical support to the FDMA staff and its partner government institutions in order to enhance their capacity to respond effectively in emergency situations.
