The OCHA Gaza Field Coordination Unit was set up in May 2003 in Gaza, and is based in the UNSCO office in Gaza city. The Gaza FCU monitors the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip and coordinates with other UN agencies and humanitarian organisations. It provides secretarial support to the Operational Coordination Group (OCG), which is chaired by UNRWA.
The OCHA FCU also coordinates with the Israeli Civil Liaison and Administration office, particularly in relation to the movement of humanitarian staff and the movement of humanitarian and commercial cargo through the border crossings.
