System-wide Scale-up Responses

As part of its global presence, which includes country and regional offices across the globe, OCHA supports IASC Scale-up Responses. Such responses are activated in the most complex and challenging humanitarian emergencies, when the highest level of mobilization is required, across the humanitarian system, to ensure that the right capacities and systems are place to effectively meet needs.
