At the beginning of 2012, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) launched a new programme dubbed the ' Pakistan Hindukush Programme (PHP)'.

This programme focuses on Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) Province and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA). This new orientation is due to the fact that these two regions are still among the most underprivileged parts of the country, where poverty, illiteracy, limited public services, political instability and natural disasters are widespread.

With its projects, the SDC contributes to alleviate some of the problems and is committed to do so under the current programme until 2014.

The main strategic objectives are

  • to contribute to improve the livelihoods and resilience of the people through increased access to resources, basic services, and economic opportunities and
  • to enhance human rights in particular for flood victims, IDPs and refugees as well as women and children.

The whole programme applies a gender and conflict sensitive approach and mainstreams Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) in the project designs.



As part of SDC, Swiss Humanitarian Aid has started - after the devastating floods in 2010 - various projects in the Reconstruction and Rehabilitation domain.
