Provision of Humanitarian Air Services in Afghanistan - SO 200639

This Special Operation (SO) is established to provide safe and reliable air transport services to the humanitarian community in Afghanistan in 2014. Continuing insecurity and poor transportation networks within the country severely limit access for aid workers to beneficiaries. The World Food Programme’s (WFP’s) United Nations Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) is therefore deemed crucial to facilitate access for more than 160 aid agencies and the donor community to provide humanitarian assistance to remote parts of the country. UNHAS operations have been running in the country since 2002. This project, numbered SO 200639, is an extension of SO 200360, which was implemented from 1 January 2012 to 31 December 2013.
