Hungary becomes member of UNDAC

February 8, 2013

The Advisory Board of the United Nations Disaster Assessment and Coordination (UNDAC) Team of the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) held its annual meeting on February 5-6 in Geneva, Switzerland where Hungary was welcomed as a new member.

The meeting, which also celebrated the 20th anniversary of the establishment of UNDAC, was also attended by Ms. Catherine Bragg, Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator and Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs at the United Nations. The preconditions for becoming a member were met through successful cooperation between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the National Directorate General for Disaster Management.

Hungary is now a member of a UN group of nearly 250 highly-skilled experts who are deployed at very short notice to countries struck by emergencies and who coordinate international humanitarian response activities in cooperation with the government concerned.
