September 2007 - Internally displaced persons (IDPs) were central to the humanitarian reform initiated by Jan Egeland, then-Emergency Relief Coordinator in 2005. It was widely recognized that the collaborative approach which had been developed to assign institutional responsibilities for IDPs was not working. Humanitarian reform was intended to "fill the gaps" in humanitarian response - particularly for IDPs -- but over time it became something else.

UNICEF launched in January 2005 its Humanitarian Action Report (HAR) in favour of 33 countries in crisis, including all CAP countries.
The following is an update on the funding situation in each of the HAR countries. The appeal figures are the original HAR appeals, and wherever the HAR appeal has been raised in light of an aggravating emergency situation or crisis, this has been noted in the text. The funding status (1) of these countries should then be seen in light of their increased humanitarian needs.

This report is Human Rights Watch's fifteenth annual review of human rights practices around the globe.
This document aims to highlight commonalities and trends in humanitarian needs and response, drawing examples where appropriate from specific situations where the Consolidated Appeals Process (CAP) takes place. It is not meant to be a condensed repetition of the 2004 CAP Mid-Year Reviews, each of which tells its own story and is the result of broad, inclusive, and intensive input from field offices and headquarters of appealing organisations.
