Organizational Structure

UNRWA is one of the largest United Nations programmes, with over 30,000 personnel working across five areas of operations, and is unique in that it delivers services directly to beneficiaries.

UNRWA Headquarters are located in Amman and in Gaza. The Agency maintains a field office in each of its areas of operations - Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip - and liaison offices in New York, Washington, Brussels and Cairo. The Agency's senior-most official is Commissioner-General Philippe Lazzarini.
