Donor contributions to the AHF are unearmarked. They are allocated through an inclusive and transparent process to respond flexibly to top priority needs, enabling eligible partners to provide life-saving humanitarian assistance.

The AHF is at the heart of humanitarian coordination. Combining the strategic leadership of the UN Humanitarian Coordinator, guidance from the Advisory Board, management from OCHA, and technical advice from partners, allocations save lives and alleviate suffering while strengthening the humanitarian system and the quality of the response.
