OCHA's services are a low-cost investment in improved humanitarian action.
For 2012, OCHA's regional operations in Asia-Pacific require US$7.1 million from donors. This will cover the operational costs of the Regional Office and offices in Bangladesh, Nepal, Japan and Papua New Guinea.
OCHA Pacific in Fiji has a separate cost plan and requires $1.17 million. In addition, the country offices in Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Myanmar and the Philippines require $8.43 million in total.
OCHA relies on voluntary contributions for 95 per cent of its budgetary requirements. OCHA depends on donor support so it can continue to deliver improved humanitarian action in the Asia-Pacific region.
