They agreed on activating cooperation and coordination mechanisms to provide better relief services and urgent needs to the crisis and marginalised zones in fields of health and nutrition, as well as, ways to enhance response to the natural calamities and crisis in general through benefiting from merits of each side.

As part of the deal, the humanitarian bodies agreed to exchange expertise and information to serve joint objectives in order to better dire living conditions in the crisis zones.
