At the end of 2014, the IASC GenCap Project decided to revise the IASC Gender Marker (GM) based on feedback from humanitarians. They asked for the coding to be simpler, less subjective and more reliable; deepen the gender analysis with age; and to develop a monitoring phase of the marker that would assess what was actually implemented and delivered.
In response to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine countless volunteers, as well as many international humanitarian actors, including the United Nations system, national and international NGOs, and other international organizations, are engaged in the humanitarian relief effort. In December 2014 the cluster system was activated, with 7 clusters engaging in life-saving activities throughout the country. This 3W (WHO is doing WHAT WHERE) captures the presence of partners currently on the ground in each oblast.

Geographical breakdown of incidents by oblast and by gov-ernment controlled versus non-government controlled areas:
Note that people are normally affected on both sides of the Line of the Contact for most incidents, given the extensive nature of water systems.
Issues to highlight
Risk of damage through shelling continues as one of them main threats to critical water infrastructure along the Line of Contact.
Eastern Ukraine has been in a humanitarian crisis since March 2014, when armed conflict erupted between separatists and Ukrainian armed forces. Separatists now control most of eastern Donetsk region, and a small area of southern Luhansk region.
For more than three years, restrictions on freedom of movement and the transfer of goods imposed by the Government of Ukraine at checkpoints along the contact line have required civilians to expose themselves to security risks, long queues, and other physical challenges, further dividing a once-integrated community.
The total number of officially registered IDPs has decreased substantially in November (by over 109,000 people).
Even IDP pensioners permanently registered in the Government Controlled Areas (GCA) cannot receive pensions without IDP registration: Most departments of the Pension Fund of Ukraine (PFU) refuse to provide pensions to these IDPs without IDP registration.
Therefore, these IDPs continue renewing their IDP registration solely to receive their pensions.
As at end December 2017, UN-coordinated appeals and refugee response plans within the Global Humanitarian Overview (GHO) required US$24.7 billion to meet the humanitarian needs of 105.1 million crisis-affected people in 38 countries. Together the appeals were funded at $13.8 billion, or 54% of requirements. Funding for the appeals in 2017 fell 46% short of requirements, with $10.9 billion outstanding.
