CERF announces new findings in latest Results Report
Claudia Hargarten June 26, 2018
A new Results Report takes stock of how a US$439 million humanitarian investment from more than 50 donors delivered life-saving assistance to over 22 million people facing the consequences of natural disasters and conflict around the world.
Overview of the context before deployment
This report draws on some recent operational experiences of the ICRC to describe the theory and practice of the ICRC’s approach to humanitarian assistance in protracted conflict. The ICRC spends about two thirds of its budget on protracted conflicts. The average length of time the ICRC has been present in the countries hosting its ten largest operations is more than 36 years. Protracted conflicts are a major source of human suffering and a cause of protracted displacement, migration and development reversals.
Greece - IOM Greece has published a report based on interviews with 1,206 unaccompanied child migrants in Greece. Some 508 said that they would not consider returning to their countries of origin because it was their intention to reach a northern European country and 282 expressed the wish to return back to their country of origin. The remainder initially expressed willingness to return home but later changed their minds and decided to stay in Greece.
By the end of 2014 the total worldwide displaced population of concern to UNHCR stood at an unprecedented 57.7 million persons, and of these 19.5 million were refugees and 38.2 million internally displaced persons (IDPs). Significant in the context of the present study is that the number of refugees under UNHCR’s mandate had increased by 23% on the previous year, 45% of the refugees are in a protracted displacement situation, and 86% of the world’s refugees are hosted by developing regions.
L’évaluation a été confié au Centre International de Déminage Humanitaire de Genève (CIDHG) agissant en partenariat avec le programme universitaire indépendant Small Arms Survey. Le mandat comprenait:
L'évaluation de l'efficacité des activités de dépollution de la zone de Mpila à Brazzaville;
L'évaluation des processus de coordination entre les autorités nationales, l'équipe de l’action contre les mines des Nations unies (UNMAT), les partenaires d'exécution, les bailleurs de fonds et les autres parties prenantes;
1 . When the Independent Monitoring Board (IMB) issued its first report early in April 2011:
• 99% of polio had been eradicated a decade previously but 1% had remained since then.
• Four countries had ‘endemic’ disease: India, Pakistan, Nigeria and Afghanistan.
• Three countries that had previously been free of disease had ‘re-established transmission’ for more than six months: Angola, Chad and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
1 . Polio is at its lowest level since records began. In the first four months of 2012, there have been fewer cases in fewer districts of fewer countries than at any previous time and, importantly, many fewer than in the same period last year.
2 . Polio is gone from India – a magnificent achievement and proof of the capability of a country to succeed when it truly takes to heart the mission of protecting its people from this vicious disease.
Breaking the Cycle of Crisis presents expert synthesis of and reflections on four research-based evaluations of Save the Children’s Rewrite the Future work to improve the quality of children’s education in Afghanistan, Angola, Nepal and South Sudan. It is intended as a policy resource for agencies interested in public service delivery in conflict-affected fragile states (CAFS) – governments, donors and NGOs.
‘REWRITE THE FUTURE’
1 . There are 10 months to go to hit the World Health Assembly’s goal of stopping global polio transmission by the end of 2012. Currently the eradication programme is not on track to meet this goal.
2 . Success in India – one of the four polio endemic countries – shows that unswerving political commitment, outstanding public health leadership, clear lines of accountability, intolerance of weak performance and the systematic enforcement of best practice can stop polio.
Project Development Objectives (from Project Appraisal Document)
The project‘s development objectives are to: (i) reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS in the Angolan population through a multi-sector approach that strengthens institutional capacity and increases access and utilization of health services for prevention, diagnosis, care, and support; (ii) strengthen the capacity of the health sector to detect new cases of TB, improve treatment compliance, and increase the completion rate; and (iii) strengthen the capacity of the MOH for effective case management of malaria.
1. Every country with persistent polio transmission, with the exception of India and Angola, has had more cases so far in 2011 than they had by the same time last year. Chad, Afghanistan and DR Congo have already exceeded their entire 2010 total.
2. The rate of occurrence of new outbreaks serves as an ongoing reminder that many countries in the world are under threat from the ease with which polio could be imported across their borders.
Drawing on the RAPID Outcome Assessment methodology, this report examines the influence of Regional Hunger and Vulnerability Programme (RHVP) on policy in southern Africa and shares lessons learned from these experiences.
Special Report by Claudia Hofmann and Ulrich Schneckener
Transnational nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) have developed strategies to improve the diffusion of and general adherence to international norms among nonstate armed actors, with the goal of persuading armed actors to adapt their behavior accordingly.

Deadly serious' funding gap and need to implement strategies consistently
Independent Monitoring Board report
In particular, the IMB expresses concern at the situations in DR Congo, Chad and Angola, and the continuing increase in cases in Pakistan.
The IMB underscores '7 important positive signs' which - if achieved by end 2011 - would affirm that the programme is back on track to interrupt all polio transmission by end-2012:
no recurrence of cases in India by end-2011;
