Humanitarian coordination is based on the principle that a coherent approach to emergency response will maximize its benefits and minimize its potential pitfalls - in short, that the “whole” will be greater that the sum of its parts.
The Humanitarian Emergency Response Fund (HERF) is designed to fund initial responses to an outbreak of an emergency in the oPt. It is open to UN agencies, international and national NGOs.
Association of International Development Agencies - AIDA - is the principle coordination forum for international NGOs operating in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT). It has served and facilitated the work of its NGO members for over 30 years. AIDA's core functions are information provision, policy analysis, linkages with the relief and development assistance community, advocacy, security and training.
