The Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) of Pakistan has been at the center of attention since the US led war on terror in late 2001.The fierce fighting between Pakistan military and non state militant groups in FATA and PATA regions has resulted in one of the biggest internal displacement of people in the history of Pakistan. The local communities had no alternative except becoming IDPs to escape from the conflict zone. According to an estimate, there were nearly three million inhabitants from FATA and KPK, by the end of 2009, which had moved to take refuge in the IDP camps or hosting communities.
