Highlight

Central Highland includes two provinces: Bamyan and Daykundi. Central Highland is affected by prolonged dryness, harsh winter, frequent floods and avalanches. The remoteness, physical access constraints and harsh terrain, coupled with frequent natural hazards, results in chronic food insecurity for majority of the population. In Central Highland, OCHA leads humanitarian coordination for both natural and conflict-induced disasters. To ensure overall coherency and consistency in humanitarian preparedness and response, OCHA facilitates monthly operational coordination team (OCT) meetings in both provinces. The OCTs are made up of humanitarian UN and NGO partners.
