In the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt), OCHA works with humanitarian partners through the cluster system to identify the most critical needs, plan responses and determine the budgets needed. Results of this work include the Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO) and the Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) – as a part of the Humanitarian Programme Cycle.
To secure funding for the HRP, the Humanitarian Coordinator (HC) and the Humanitarian Country Team engage with donors, locally and globally. In doing so, they are supported by OCHA, which monitors funding levels, and helps advocate for critical funding priorities. Accurate and timely reporting on humanitarian funding by all partners and donors to the Financial Tracking System (FTS) is key to enable this work.
