The monthly risk briefing provides information on global weather, volcanic, human and health events where members may consider using the Start Fund’s Crisis Anticipation Window. It reports on new, emerging or deteriorating situations; therefore, ongoing events that are considered to be unchanged are not featured and risks that are beyond the scope and scale of the Start Fund are also not featured.

According to the UN OCHA Financial Tracking Service (FTS), by 30 October 2014 overall humanitarian funding to the affected region (Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria) was US$580 million, compared to US$886 million in 2012.
Between 2012 and 2014 humanitarian funding to Nigeria increased from US$16 million to US$38 million. This was mainly due to the United States (US) contributing US$12 million in 2014, its first contribution in this period.
