A note on reading this report
This report presents a collective portrait of the Red Cross and Red Crescent plans, achievements and financial expenditure in response to the earthquake on 12 January 2010 in Haiti. It reflects a consolidated picture of the best available data obtained in Haiti and through the participation of Red Cross and Red Crescent National Societies and organizations around the world. This is the fourth Federation-wide public report in the proposed series of reports and presents the cumulative achievements of the Red Cross and Red Crescent since the earthquake.
The report consists of programmatic data, collected in Haiti, and financial data, collected from the headquarters of National Societies. Updated programmatic data was provided by 13 National Societies and the IFRC’s secretariat for this report. The programme information and indicators illustrate the principal activities carried out during the relief and recovery phases of operations through to 30 September 2013, but do not reflect the full portfolio of each Federation member. The indicators and methodologies used to gather information on programmes will continue to be refined to reflect future phases of the operation.
The financial data reported as of 30 September 2013 shows an analysis of the funds received and expended for the operation in response to the earthquake. The financial information presented in each Federation-wide progress report is reflective of the number of National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies reporting into it. For this fourth public report, 19 National Societies and the IFRC Secretariat provided updated financial information. Fourteen National Societies had already accounted for all their funds raised for the operation, therefore no updated data was requested from them. A further two Red Cross or Red Crescent Societies have not submitted updated data for this reporting period, and in all cases their most recent past submission of data was used. The report tries to also capture data regarding activities funded by the Red Cross and Red Crescent, but implemented through external partners.
As the methodologies continue to be refined, the definitions of some indicators might alter, which will lead to changes in the figures reported. For explanations of the methodology and definitions used in this report, please refer to Annexes 1 and 2
