Consolidated Appeal 2012: Revision



The original appeal (published in January 2012) based its response plans on a planning figure of 120,000 Ivorian refugees in Liberia, plus 140,000 affected people in communities hosting refugees. This is turn was based on a refugee count in mid-November of 138,000, with a projection based on prevailing trends that 18,000 would return spontaneously to Côte d’Ivoire by the start of 2012. However a verification exercise, with biometric registration, in January and February found that many more than expected had returned, leaving 69,851 Ivorian refugees in Liberia. This revision therefore adjusts sector response plans, projects and budgets to account for this lower caseload. The overall strategy is still valid, and actions to help affected host communities are still necessary on the originally-planned scale. The overall funding request of this consolidated appeal (CAP) declines from $121 million to $99 million. However, even with respect to these lower requirements, funding to date only amounts to 18%.
