Humanitarian Bulletin: Issue 01 - April 2012
The CAP objectives can be attained only if funding is provided in an even manner all the sectors participating in the CaP. Consequences of such a funding policy would help prevent indirect humanitarian risks
Lack of funding to Agriculture sector poses a serious threat to comprehensive recovery efforts in the affected counties. Food security would not only positively impact poor indicators in other sector such as Nutrition, education and protection but it also helps build faster the resilience of local communities. In order to achieve this, a reassessment of funding priority and coverage by the donor community is required.
Funding pledges - now at US$ 7 million - need to be speedily materialized to help provide timely assistance and protection to those in need and prevent relapsing into and/or perpetuating vulnerability.
