One of the primary goals of the United Nations is "to achieve international co-operation in solving international problems of an economic, social, cultural, or humanitarian character". The UN coordinates humanitarian relief and financial assistance for operations in areas affected by natural and man-made disasters supporting the efforts of national authorities.

With a solid multilateral foundation, the United Nations supports national governments in establishing effective humanitarian policies and implementing International Humanitarian Law.
