UNOCHA Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific

Since its establishment in 2005, OCHA’s Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (ROAP) has sought to minimise the vulnerability of populations in the region to humanitarian crises. ROAP has provided support and assistance to governments, UN agencies, NGOs and other humanitarian actors in response to a number of major natural disasters, including through the deployment staff with a range of technical expertise. The Regional Office also works to build response capacity in the region before disasters strike, by strengthening emergency preparedness.
