United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA)

United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA)

UNOCHA is the part of the United Nations Secretariat responsible for bringing together humanitarian actors to ensure a coherent response to emergencies. 

OCHA also ensures there is a framework within which each actor can contribute 7 to the overall response effort. From over 30 offices around the world, some 1,900 specialized and dedicated OCHA staff work to ensure that effective assistance reaches millions of humanitarian beneficiaries in four continents. OCHA Jordan Office is supporting the Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator (RC/HC) in realizing his vision of one nationally-led coordinated platform for humanitarian and development assistance in Jordan. Through acting as Secretariat to the Humanitarian Country Team meetings, OCHA Jordan Office supports the coordination of humanitarian affairs in Jordan at the policy and strategic level. The office also coordinates the implementation of the UN Security Council Resolution 2165 to enable the delivery of humanitarian aid across the Jordanian Al-Ramtha border to southern Syria. 

Finally, OCHA Jordan Office helps mobilize flexible and predictable humanitarian funding and funds humanitarian and emergency projects through its Emergency Response Fund (ERF) and Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF).
