Fortunately, after the massive Earthquake of 2005, Pakistan was blessed with a National Disaster Management System, which though was at a nascent stage of development, but the flood of 2010, propelled it to the fore front and provided a framework to launch the Relief / Early Recovery work. All the wings of National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) to include Operations Wing, Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) Wing and Support and Services (S&S) Wing, being functional arms of NDMA, were strengthened and their capacity to respond to natural disasters was enforced though institutional capacity building, training and effective human resource management. Additionally support structures like National Institute of Disaster Management (NIDM), National Disaster Management Fund (NDMF) were fully operationalised which helped NDMA to effectively manage a wide range of disasters including Floods 2010, Attabad Lake Crisis n Hunza, PHET Cyclone, Kohistan Snow Avalanches, Evacuation of 260 Pakistani Students and Families from Osh, Kyrgyzstan and Air Blue Crash.
