The Common Humanitarian Fund (CHF) for Afghanistan was established in January 2014 under the leadership of the Humanitarian Coordinator (HC). The objectives of the Afghanistan CHF are to promote needs-based assistance in accordance with humanitarian principles, to respond to the most urgent needs, and strengthen coordination and leadership through priority clusters and the HC.

The total amount of funding available for the second round allocation to the Afghanistan CHF in 2014 is US$12.6 million. This paper outlines the Allocation Strategy for this round of funding.

The CHF Advisory Board (AB) met on 6 August 2014 to discuss the priorities for the second standard allocation. At only 3% of the Common Humanitarian Action Plan (CHAP) / Strategic Response Plan (SRP), the primary objective of the second allocation will be to maximize the impact of funds already committed by the CHF under the first standard allocation, where life-saving results can be achieved, value for money ensured, and coherence between sectors is shown.
