The extraordinary contribution of US$500 million from the Government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to relief operations in Iraq in June 2014 came at a time of increasing population displacements and unprecedented humanitarian needs. The contribution represented more than 60 per cent of humanitarian funding received last year for Iraq— more than all other donors combined—and covered nearly half of the relief requirements in the country.

Registration Open for Week of Events

This year, UNOCHA, UNISDR and SPC are partnering to hold a week-long program of events in Suva, Fiji around disaster management and resilience in the Pacific. This is the first time the events have been streamlined into a single week. Since many participants have previously attended all three meetings at separate times, it is hoped that the new week-long combined program will maximise use of their time.

UNISDR will host Pacific Regional Disaster Resilience Meetingon 26 and 27 October
