B. Background

ADPC is currently implementing the “Strengthening Institutionalization of the Program for Enhancement of Emergency Response” (PEER -5) in South Asia with technical and financial assistance from the USAID Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance. The program has been an essential instrument for enhancing disaster preparedness in the region by forming and strengthening skilled emergency responder groups from communities, disaster response agencies, and hospitals for the past 20 years in Asia. In this current phase of the program, Pakistan will continue to work with partner agencies, including training and academic institutions, as a project country. Building upon PEER’s success in training emergency responders and developing instructors for more than two decades in Asia, there is a need to further strengthen the institutionalization of the PEER approach as an integral part of existing and future policies, strategies, budgets, and programs of national and sub-national governments and other non-government agencies including the private sector. The current phase of the PEER Program (PEER-5) aims to strengthen national and regional partners’ institutional and technical capacity to accelerate the institutionalization and sustainability of the PEER program in the program countries.
