Over the course of seven weeks, flooding in Pakistan has affected over 20 million people across 160 000 km2. Extensive damage has been caused to key infrastructure such as roads and irrigation channels, as well as dikes and embankments which serve as protective structures to prevent reduce the risk of floods. The Agriculture Cluster, led by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), has appealed for USD 170.6 million within the framework of the Revised Pakistan Floods Emergency Response Plan. Should a flood emergency arise, this Plan will dictate down to each detail, the exact steps to be taken for an effective mobilization of all of their resources and flood components to protect lives and property.The FERP gives the property manager detailed lists of tools, materials, instructions and specifies the order in which all tasks are to take place, ensuring a safe and effective flood defense program.
Disaster preparedness provides a platform to design effective, realistic and coordinated planning, reduces duplication of efforts and increase the overall effectiveness of National Societies, household and community members disaster preparedness and response efforts. The record monsoon rains caused rivers to overflow and flash floods to surge from northwest to central and southern Pakistan, where in Sindh province flood waves continue. Property owners and management staff benefit greatly by knowing ahead-of-time all the costs, resources and time required to defend their property from a flood event.
The Pakistan Initial Floods Emergency Response plan was launched on 11 August to mobilize immediate support.


Failure to respond to agricultural needs in time will trigger a domino effect of further losses and prolonged dependence on external aid.
They can therefore take all necessary steps ahead of time to ensure that deployment occurs as planned.As required by FEMA, a Flood Emergency Response Plan (FERP) is an integral part of the flood proofing process.
Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies around the globe work with vulnerable communities to prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters.
With increased access allowing assessments of the affected areas, the Response Plan was revised on 17 September to reflect a more comprehensive and updated account of needs and required funding for relief and early recovery interventions over a 12-month period. This Plan outlines the procedures your business needs to follow in order to ensure preparedness during a flood emergency and during the times in-between.
That is, to predict and, where possible, prevent disasters, mitigate their impact on vulnerable populations, and respond to and effectively cope with their consequences.
These plans are site specific to the conditions, the structure, the type of flooding expected and life safety issues. The key to the plan’s success depends upon considerable efforts taken during the drafting of the plan, ensuring that proper actions are taken in the correct sequence, and that no key steps are overlooked.This plan is necessary for any flood-proofed building to ensure that the flood proofing components and measures taken will offer flood protection under all conditions, including power failure.


Once a building has been fitted with its defensive hardware Flood Panel can offer a pre-event installation service: Our installation crews will go to the site that is under imminent threat of a flooding event and install the required barriers before the threat reaches the site.
This service is only available to projects that have had Flood Panel perform the original installation and been maintained by Flood Panel staff from there on. It is also required that the client have a comprehensive Flood Emergency Response Plan that clearly outlines the designated reaction time and trigger point at which time the process will begin. Flood Emergency Response Plans are available through Flood Panel (see Consultancy) This service will be covered by an annual contract with a regular maintenance schedule built in.
