Overview

Humanitarian Civil-Military Coordination facilitates the essential dialogue and interaction between civilian and military actors in humanitarian emergencies necessary to protect and promote humanitarian principles, avoid competition, minimize inconsistency, and when appropriate, pursue common goals. The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (ROAP) civil-military coordination strategy focuses on building a predictable civil-military coordination engagement tailored to the regional context. An important element is establishing and maintaining strategic and operational partnerships with military and police during the response preparedness phase.
