The Regional Humanitarian Funding Update provides a quarterly overview of funding levels and trends in the 14 countries in the Central and East Africa region (CEA) (1) based on data reported to the Financial Tracking System (FTS) (2).

The CEA region faces the greatest humanitarian need anywhere in the world. Out of 15 Consolidated Humanitarian Appeals launched in the world for 2007, nine are from countries in the region. This represent 75 per cent of global humanitarian requirements.

This first issue looks at trends in the Consolidated Appeals; allocations from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), as well as the outcome of the Humanitarian Financing Workshop in Addis Ababa in January 2007.

I. The Consolidated Appeals Process (CAP) in Central and East Africa

In November 2006, Inter-Agency Consolidated Appeals were launched to facilitate emergency response to crises in over 29 countries world-wide. The appeals cover the activities of 140 organisations and aim to assist 27 million people during the course of 2007. Nine of these appeals seek to respond to emergencies in eleven countries in the CEA region. The total requirement for the response strategies outlined in these appeals is USD$ (3) 3.015 billion as of 19 April.

To date the FTS has recorded a total of over $908.6 million dollars in contributions to humanitarian response in the region for 2007 (4) (both CAP and non-CAP funding), of which $ 787 million has been contributed through Consolidated Appeals. An addition total amount of $ 420.6 million has also been pledged to the region (see endnotes) (5). The tables below show the ten highest contributing donors to humanitarian response in the CEA region in 2007 through the CAPs and overall. The ten donors contributing most to CAPs in the region also largely represent the ten donors contributing the highest amounts to humanitarian response overall to the region. This trend demonstrates the continued preference to fund within the appeals framework.
