OCHA's services are a low-cost investment in improved humanitarian action. In 2013, OCHA's Regional Office for the Pacific requires US$1.2 million to provide humanitarian support to 14 countries and territories.
OCHA globally relies on voluntary contributions for 95 per cent of its budgetary requirements, while 5 per cent are derived from the United Nations regular budget.
As we head into 2014, OCHA will continue to depend on donor support in order to deliver improved humanitarian action in the Pacific region.
