HIGHLIGHT

Central Region consists Kabul, Logar, Kapisa, Parwan, Panjsher Maydan Wardak. The region is prone to both recurring natural and man-made disasters. This includes protracted conflict that have led to mass displacement of population, with 51,775 people displaced in the region in 2018 alone. Conflict is a significant challenge in the region, especially in Maydan Wardak, Logar, and some districts of Kapisa and Parwan, where some districts are contested and insecure. Similar to other parts of the country, small scale recurrent and predictable hazards can easily convert to a disaster in CR. Decades of conflict have had a severe impact on infrastructure, resilience, and population movement that has led to high levels of vulnerability, weak resilience, dependency.

OCHA leads humanitarian coordination for both natural and conflict-induced disasters. To ensure overall coherency and consistency in humanitarian preparedness and response; OCHA coordinates bimonthly/quarterly Humanitarian Regional Team (HRT) meetings in Kabul and needs based an operational coordination team (OCT) meetings in all six provinces. The HRT and OCTs are made up of humanitarian UN and NGO partners. OCHA also participates in Provincial Disaster Management committee meeting, usually chaired by provincial governor or deputy governor.
