OCHA: Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs

The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) coordinates the work of development organisations and other national and international actors in humanitarian emergencies.

The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) is part of United Nations Secretariat. The Office is responsible for coordinating humanitarian aid. In the event of a humanitarian emergency or disaster, it will guide the development organisations involved, as well as other national and international actors, to maximise aid efficiency. The aim of the missions is to reduce the suffering of those affected. It is also about protecting the rights of those in distress, developing sustainable solutions and preparing for future disasters.

OCHA receives five percent of its budget from the United Nations. In addition, the Office relies on voluntary contributions from member states and other donations. OCHA was founded in 1998 and today has its headquarters in New York and Geneva as well as more than 30 country offices. Visit website
