Since its establishment in 2013, the overall goal of OCHA Lebanon Office has been to support the Resident/Humanitarian Coordinator in ensuring a coherent and effective humanitarian response to within the context of the Syrian crisis, and in line with the Crisis Response Plan in Lebanon. Through encouraging the Government of Lebanon and liasing with International and national NGOs, context-specific coordination mechanisms are ensured for the most cost-effective and coherent delivery of humanitarian assistance.

Developments in Syria that may impact the humanitarian situation in Lebanon are monitored and communicated as appropriate while assessing community vulnerability and building bridges with stabilization and social cohesion actors are supported and conducted. A common situational awareness and understanding of humanitarian needs is ensured through coordinating the work of the Joint Analysis Unit.

OCHA Lebanon seeks sufficient, timely and optimally allocated humanitarian resourcing through managing programmatic and financial aspects of the Country-Based Pooled Fund (CBPF) and promote partner compliance with CBPF procedures in addition to processing the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) grants.
