An inter-Cluster assessment mission was conducted to Ladha, Sararogha, Sarwakai, and Tiarza Tehsils South Waziristan Agency (SWA) from 10 to 13 February 2016. The mission visited eight recently de-notified villages. The Government plans to facilitate the return of some 30,000 IDPs to these areas.
Key findings and recommendations
• The level of damage to structures and houses was very high (80 to 90 per cent). Returning IDPs will need emergency and transitional shelter, with almost blanket support needed in some areas.
