South Asia is one of the most disaster-prone and conflict-affected regions in the world, with Afghanistan and India belonging to the top ten countries with the highest number of reported natural disasters in a year. The most common disasters in the region are floods, drought, landslides, avalanches and earthquakes. In 2014 alone, 4.5 million people were affected by floods in Pakistan-administered Kashmir, Punjab and Sindh, and 2.9 million were affected by drought in Sindh ; 130,000 people were affected by floods in the Far-Western and Mid- Western regions of Nepal ; and in in India, 450,000 people were affected by the floods in Uttar Pradesh, 2.6 million in Bihar, 1.2 million in Assam and 5 million in Jammu and Kashmir, apart from 9 million people affected by Cyclone Hudhud in Andhra Pradesh. Sri Lanka, a country that has suffered severe drought and flash floods for the last three years, had 1.5 million people affected by disasters in 2014. In addition, South Asia is also suffering from protracted internationalized and internal armed conflicts and almost half of all terrorist attacks worldwide. The geographical features of South Asia favor insurgency, while economic and social factors such as poverty, discrimination and poor governance underline grievances that promote separatist movements as well as ideological armed struggles. In 2014, more than 2.6 million people in Pakistan and 630,000 people in Afghanistan were internally displaced due to terrorism, internal conflict and border disputes.
