The UN coordinates regular discussions on Afghanistan, in which the UK and international partners assess the situation, and review options for collective response. The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) monitors the humanitarian situation in Afghanistan, and provides regular updates to donors. OCHA also coordinate delivery of the multi-donor Humanitarian Response Plan, which the UK contributes to.
