Consolidated Appeals Process (CAP): Mid-Year Review of the Humanitarian Appeal 2010
Humanitarian country teams have reviewed their 2010 strategic action plans for sixteen major crises around the world1 and have issued updated strategies, work plans and funding requests. At mid-year, while humanitarian funding requirements overall have changed only slightly since these appeals were launched at the end of 2009, certain appeals have changed significantly. In West Africa, the deepening food and nutrition crisis in Niger necessitates a very urgent request for greater resources for the rest of 2010 (on top of the emergency request in March). Neighbouring Chad, whose eastern population and hosted refugees are already the subject of a major aid operation, now also urgently requires food and nutrition support on a scale similar to Niger in its western regions. Scant rains are also raising food needs in Zimbabwe, while in Kenya, the latest short rains season was good but food insecurity continues to be severe and widespread because of the cumulative effects of a recent succession of poor rain seasons.
Funding to date in 2010 is only slightly behind that of recent years, despite earlier fears of the effects of the global recession on aid budgets and the possibility that the immense funding response to the Haiti earthquake would lessen resources available to other crises. Taken together, these appeals are 48% funded, leaving $4.9 billion2 still to be found to meet humanitarian needs for the rest of 2010.
This year's mid-year reviews follow a new, streamlined format which emphasizes monitoring and reporting on achievements to date visà- vis the targets that country teams and clusters expressed in their original consolidated appeals six months ago. This real-time monitoring and measuring against targets will allow better operational decisionmaking, promote accountability, and show the effectiveness of humanitarian action. All of these support our renewed request for donor generosity on a scale to meet the humanitarian needs of people afflicted by conflict and/or disaster for the next six months.
