KINSHASA, - Michel Noureddine Kassa, the outgoing head of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), has completed his mandate, after more than eight years of humanitarian service to the country with the UN as well as the international medical relief NGO Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF).
OCHA, which in 1998 succeeded the Department of Humanitarian Affairs, is mandated to help coordinate humanitarian emergency response; to advocate on behalf of humanitarian issues with political bodies, notably the UN Security Council; and, in support of the UN Secretary-General, to ensure that all humanitarian issues, including those which fall between gaps in existing mandates of agencies, such as protection and assistance for internally displaced persons, are addressed.
Kassa spoke with IRIN on Saturday, during which he talked about his experience in the DRC, the many challenges faced by humanitarian agencies and the state of current relief efforts in the country.
