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.
The Global Humanitarian Overview
Is the world’s most comprehensive, authoritative and evidence-based assessment of humanitarian needs;
Is based on detailed analysis of wide-ranging data from many different sources, and face-to-face interviews with hundreds of thousands of people directly affected by humanitarian crises across the globe;
This is the first consolidated presentation of the reported results of CERF funding, covering a full year of CERF allocations. As such, it serves as a pilot and will inform future CERF results reporting. This report was compiled on the basis of information provided by Resident Coordinators/Humanitarian Coordinators (RC/ HCs) and Humanitarian Country Teams (HCTs) in 66 consolidated reports covering the results of more than 450 CERF-funded projects.

0. MAJOR CHANGE SINCE THE PREVIOUS VERSION OF THE HIP
In Somalia, the humanitarian situation today shows many parallels to the period ahead of the devastating 2011 drought that triggered a declaration of famine, which caused the excess deaths of 258 000 people the majority of them being children under five.
Snapshot 9–15 July
oPT: 178 Palestinians have been killed since the launch of Israel’s Operation Protective Edge on 8 July. Around 17,000 people have sought shelter in UNRWA schools. Rockets from Syria and Lebanon have hit the north of Israel, raising fears of the conflict spreading.
Democratic Republic of Congo: More than 30,000 people are estimated to have been displaced in North Kivu, South Kivu, and Katanga in June, due to FARDC military operations and fighting between armed groups.
Global humanitarian action at mid-2013 has entered uncharted territory in terms of the number of people needing help and resources still to be secured, mainly because of the Syria crisis. The Syria Humanitarian Assistance Response Plan aims to help 6.8 million people inside Syria in 2013, and the Syria Regional Response Plan for refugees and affected host communities intends to help another 5.3 million people.

UNICEF report: despite recent improvements, outlook for the Horn of Africa increasingly worrisome
More than 8 million people need emergency assistance
NAIROBI, 11 April 2012 – The massive humanitarian response in the Horn of Africa in 2011 reversed the spread of famine and saved tens of thousands of children’s lives, but the outlook is increasingly worrisome, threatening the tentative gains achieved to date, according to a new UNICEF report.
This will be the final Situation Report issued by OCHA on the Horn of Africa Crisis. It will be replaced by a humanitarian bulletin that will follow the same every-other-week reporting schedule. The next report will be issued on 9 March.
￼￼￼I. HIGHLIGHTS/KEY PRIORITIES
More than 13 million people in the Horn of Africa are in need of life-saving assistance. While this emergency has made international headlines only in July, when famine was declared in parts of Somalia, country-based pooled funds in Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia already supported the humanitarian response to address the effects of the drought with US $69.2 million before July. Combined, the three Funds have allocated $108.2 million to this emergency in 2011 (as of 15 September 2011).
The international community, in consultation with the African Union, Regional Economic Communities and national Governments, in response to the situation in the Horn of Africa, and through various on-going efforts and initiatives, has come up with a number of areas of priorities, required to respond the crisis. The funding requirement is currently estimated at US$ 2.481 billion in aid to respond to the drought emergency (This include all other sectors not considered priority in this analysis). Out of this, US$ 1 billion has already been committed so far.
