Humanitarian Implementation Plan (HIP) West Africa Sahel Region (ECHO/-WF/BUD/2013/91000) Last update: 09/07/13 Version 3

0 . MAJOR CHANGES SINCE PREVIOUS VERSION OF THE HIP

Following a thorough assessment of the proposals received, the proposed selection, based on compliance with our strategy and quality of proposals, implies a shift between the two budget lines. A reinforcement of the humanitarian budget line associated with a decrease of the food aid budget line is required. This is partly explained by the fact that a significant number of projects are multi-sectoral and can therefore not be considered under the food aid budget line.
