On 19 April 2010, an earthquake measuring 5.3 on the Richter scale struck Samangan province in northern Afghanistan. This resulted in the death of 8 people and 50 injured, with homes in more than 50 villages completely or partially destroyed in the districts of Dara-i-Sufi Bala, Darai-Sufi Payin and Ruyi Du Ab.
This Good Practice paper focuses on Afghanistan, looking at the cluster process of the 2010 Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), particularly centered on the underfunded allocation to Afghanistan and the inclusiveness of the process undertaken within the clusters.
The CERF is a humanitarian fund established in 2005 by the United Nations to enable timely and reliable humanitarian assistance to those affected by natural disasters and armed conflicts. Afghanistan is the sixth largest recipient of CERF funds.
