The Regional Organisations Humanitarian Action Network (ROHAN) is an informal network of 13 regional organisation secretariats and centres working in humanitarian action.

Established in February 2015 and launched in May 2016 at World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) in Istanbul, ROHAN is convened by the Humanitarian Policy Group (HPG) at the Overseas Development Institute.

ROHAN provides a point of connection between regional organisations across the world. It aims to bring representatives from the secretariats and centres of regional organisations involved in humanitarian work into regular contact with one another, fostering a network of peers who can provide mutual support and advice.

Through a process of sharing knowledge and building trust, ROHAN serves as a platform for deeper engagement both among regional organisations and with important partners in the international community who share the same objectives of supporting people affected by crisis.
