[HOT] Shapefile of Areas in Pakistan where we need imagery?

If you look closely at the Spot WMS imagery, the area in blue seems more
like a broad sketch around the patches available than "imagery we have",
except in the North where it apparently follows the detail of the
coverage (which seems to be in the process of being extended, anyway).
Where I have looked, towns generally do not seem to be covered, for example.
I think the shapefile of affected districts from UNOCHA mentioned by
Nicolas would be the most relevant, as, for example, logistics might
need to know not only strictly about the portions of roads that have
been submerged, but also about what is around.
And, of course, it would be great if the funding efforts described by
Peter Stumpf could help resolve the potential conflicts with the
commercial interests of imagery suppliers.
