This Annual Report presents information on the achievements of the Myanmar Humanitarian Fund during the 2019 calendar year. However, because grant allocation, project implementation and reporting processes often take place over multiple years (CBPFs are designed to support ongoing and evolving humanitarian responses), the achievement of CBPFs are reported in two distinct ways:

Information on allocations granted in 2019 (shown in blue). This method considers intended impact of the allocations rather than achieved results as project implementation and reporting often continues into the subsequent year and results information is not immediately available at the time of publication of annual reports.

Results reported in 2019 attributed to allocations granted in 2019 and prior years (shown in orange). This method provides a more complete picture of achievements during a given calendar year but includes results from allocations that were granted in previous years. This data is extracted from final narrative reports approved between 1 February 2019 - 31 January 2020.

Figures for people targeted and reached may include double counting as individuals often receive aid from multiple cluster/sectors.

Contributions are recorded based on the exchange rate when the cash was received.

This may differ from the Certified Statement of Accounts, which records contributions based on the exchange rate at the time of the pledge.


Humanitarian situation in 2019

The humanitarian situation in several parts of Myanmar remained fragile with continuing protracted crises in some areas, a major escalation of armed conflict and civilian displacement in Rakhine and southern Chin states, ongoing vulnerability in Kachin, Shan and the South-east, and monsoon flooding across much of the of the country. The key drivers of the humanitarian needs include underlying vulnerability due to discrimination and denial of rights, limited access to basic services, conflict, insecurity and climatic shocks. According to the 2020 Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO), by the end of 2019, some 941,000 people were in need of humanitarian assistance in Myanmar (1.7 per cent of the total population).
