Humanitarian and special economic assistance

In 1999, the United Nations, through the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, continued to coordinate the collective efforts of the international community, in particular those of the UN system, to provide humanitarian and special economic assistance to States and population groups stricken by complex emergencies and natural disasters. Attention was devoted to reducing vulnerability, promoting solutions to root causes and strengthening the coordination of emergency humanitarian assistance, especially in the context of the transition from relief to rehabilitation, reconstruction and development.
