The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) respond to environmental emergencies through the Joint UNEP/OCHA Environment Unit (JEU). JEU combines UNEP's environmental expertise with the OCHA-coordinated humanitarian network. This helps to ensure an integrated approach by coordinating international efforts and mobilizing partners.
In 2015, the Surge Capacity Section (SCS) in the Emergency Services Branch carried out 200 deployments to 34 countries: 88 from the Emergency Response Roster (ERR), 68 from the Stand-By Partnership Programme (SBPP), 39 from the Associates Surge Pool (ASP) and five from the Roaming Emergency Surge Officer (RESO) roster.
