The South Sudan Humanitarian Fund (SSHF) is a multi-donor pooled fund that supports the timely allocation and disbursement of donor resources to humanitarian partners to respond to the most critical needs in a strategic and coordinated manner. Through the SSHF:
• Funds are channeled to where they are most needed according to the most urgent priorities within the Humanitarian Response Plan as agreed by the humanitarian community.
As of 31 January, United Nations Coordinated Appeals and Refugee Response Plans within the Global Humanitarian Overview (GHO) require US$22.5 billion to meet the humanitarian needs of 93.5 million crisis-affected people in 33 countries. Needs and financial requirements have increased due the finalisation of five additional Humanitarian Response Plans (HRPs). Seventeen HRPs have been published so far. Together the appeals are funded at $77.2 million, leaving a shortfall of $22.4 billion.
CBPFs allow governments and private donors alike to pool their contributions to support specific emergencies. They ensure that timely, coordinated and principled funding is available and prioritized at the local level by those who are closest to people in need. CBPFs increase predictability of funding and involve frontline responders, including national and local NGOs, in the planning and delivery of humanitarian response. The following are paid contributions and commitments made to CBPFs by year.
Country-Based Pooled Funds (CBPFs) enable humanitarian partners operating in countries affected by natural disasters and armed conflict to deliver timely and effective life-saving assistance to people who need it most. They allow Governments and private donors to pool their contributions to support specific emergencies.
HOW CBPFs WORK

From January to end August 2016, the Sudan Humanitarian Fund allocated a total of US$31 million through the first allocation and the Reserve for Emergencies.
The first allocation responded to the needs of new and protracted displacement cases in the Darfur states, South and West Kordofan states and Blue Nile, focused on the mainstreaming of protection in three localities in South Kordofan and supported vital nutrition work in El Nino-affected areas in eastern Sudan. The SHF also supported the ongoing response to refugees in White Nile state.
From the United Nations Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator
Sudan continues to face significant and diverse humanitarian needs, both protracted and emerging, and at the end of the year, more than 3 million people remained internally displaced. During 2015, some 359,000 people were newly displaced internally, over 194,000 refugees crossed into Sudan, and many states in Sudan remained above emergency malnutrition thresholds.
