2018 was the most impactful year ever for the OCHA-managed Country-Based Pooled Funds (CBPFs). A record US$950 million was raised for life-saving action in 17 of the world’s most severe and complex humanitarian emergencies.
Under the leadership of Humanitarian Coordinators, CBPFs support essential components of humanitarian response to save lives and provide protection services to the most vulnerable people affected by crises.
URBAN SETTLEMENTS WORKING GROUP
As a Cluster Lead Agency, UNDP has commissioned an independent prospective evaluation on the scope of the Global Cluster for Early Recovery (GCER) at global level and on the work of the Early Recovery clusters/sectors in countries where clusters/sectors were formally activated by the IASC. The purpose of the evaluation was two-fold: firstly, to evaluate the overall effectiveness of GCER coordination, and secondly to support UNDP’s consideration of the most appropriate way to support Early Recovery in the future.

This initial collection of case studies represents one vehicle the WG is using to further the discussion on settlement based approaches.
This is the first consolidated presentation of the reported results of CERF funding, covering a full year of CERF allocations.
