The Ethiopia Humanitarian Fund Allocates US$ 11.35 to fill critical gaps until early 2018

The OCHA-managed Ethiopia Humanitarian Fund (EHF) allocated US$11.35 million under its Reserve Allocation as a bridging response to the critical requirements identified until early 2018. The EHF dedicated the current round of allocation for Oromia and Somali regions to provide impactful response. Triage between the various planning documents, including the recent adjustment to the mid-year review of the Humanitarian Requirements Document (HRD), the Somali Region Operational Plan and the Inter-cluster prioritization exercise, identified ‘top priorities’ with critical humanitarian funding gaps across sectors until the first quarter of 2018. In 2017, the EHF has allocated more than $82.4 million to support 106 multi-sector projects, with the financial contribution of seven donors (Germany, Ireland,
South Korea, Switzerland, Sweden, United Kingdom and United States).

Taking into account all pipelines, there remains an overall funding gap of US$248.7 million against the revised Ethiopia humanitarian requirements of $1.4 billion (up from $1.259 billion) to the end of the year
