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.
CERF RELEASES ITS 2015 ANNUAL REPORT
In 2015, CERF allocated nearly US$470 million in humanitarian assistance for helping front line partners on the ground kick-start or reinforces emergency activities in 45 countries. CERF raised $409 million with the support from 59 member states.
KEY RESULTS INCLUDE:
3.6 million people currently receiving antiretroviral therapy
9.3 million people treated for tuberculosis
270 million insecticide-treated nets distributed to protect families from malaria
8.7 million lives saved
The CERF raised a record amount of US$465 million through the contributions of Member States, Observers, regional governments and the private sector. 2011 marks only the second time in the history of the Fund that it exceeded the $450 million target established for it by the General Assembly.
Additionally, $46.4 million was transferred from the CERF loan window to the grant window with the reduction of the loan element by the General Assembly.
United Nations humanitarian officials say they are hopeful of raising hundreds of millions from donors for the fund set up to ensure rapid and reliable assistance for people caught up in disasters or conflicts.
The annual pledging conference for the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), launched in 2006, will be held tomorrow at UN Headquarters in New York, with donors being asked to meet a target of $450 million.
