OCHA’s Asia-Pacific Presence (2nd and 3rd Quarters 2011)
OCHA’s Financial Tracking Service (FTS) is a global, real-time database that records all reported international humanitarian aid, including that for UN Agencies, NGOs, the Red Cross/ Red Crescent Movement, bilateral aid, in-kind aid, and private donations.
FTS features a special focus on Consolidated Appeals and Flash Appeals because they cover the major humanitarian crisis and because their funding requirements are well defined - which allows FTS to indicate to what extent populations in crisis receive humanitarian aid in proportion to needs.
All FTS data are provided by donors or recipient organizations. Reporting is easy and it provides visibility for everyone. More importantly, a well-defined picture of needs and gaps contributes to a more coordinated approach to humanitarian assistance and helps to identify where funding gaps exist.
FTS offers a series of standard tables that show humanitarian aid flows in various formats tables on demand.
