Coordinating humanitarian assistance

Following sudden disasters and similar emergencies, the UN Department of Humanitarian Affairs (DHA) coordinates and facilitates, and provides the framework for the UN entities responsible for relief assistance, bilateral donors, intergovernmental organizations and NGOs. At the country level, this framework is provided by the UN Resident Coordinator and the UN Disaster Management Team. In the event of a disaster, the DHA immediately issues an appeal for assistance from the international community, and makes available a constantly updated overview of the situation.
