ONE UN for AFGHANISTAN

OCHA

OCHA

Category:UN Agencies

The office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs is responsible for bringing together humanitarian actors to ensure a coherent response to emergencies and that crisis-affected people receive the assistance and protection they need.

OCHA amplifies the voices of affected people, champions humanitarian principles and action and promotes solutions to reduce humanitarian need, risk and vulnerability. OCHA is not an operational agency directly engaged in the delivery of humanitarian programmes and its added value is as an honest broker, facilitator, thought leader and global advocate, providing support to the humanitarian system. In fulfilling its coordination mandate, OCHA is guided by the humanitarian principles of humanity, neutrality, impartiality and independence.http://www.unocha.org/afghanistan
