With the operation moving into recovery phase, this report aims to inform minor revision in the budget to accommodate reallocation between budget lines. The total Appeal budget remains unchanged.
The key changes are:
Reduce budget for Construction – Housing (▼27%) and Teaching Materials (▼23%)
Increase budget for Logistics, Transport and Storage (▲50%), Cash Disbursements (▲27%) and Consultants & Professional Fees (▲22%)
Reduction in the overall budget for recovery phase The IFRC revised Appeal is 48.7 per cent covered in hard and soft pledges as of 19 August 2015. The current funding gaps (approximately CHF 38 million) are mainly related to recovery interventions in shelter, health, water and sanitation, livelihoods, community preparedness, disaster risk reduction, and National Society institutional development. These interventions are crucial to ensure that affected populations are supported to recover and rebuild their lives as well as better prepare for future disasters. IFRC will continue to explore funding opportunities to meet the humanitarian needs of affected population outlined in the Appeal. IFRC, on behalf of NRCS, would like to thank the partners and donors for their generous contributions.
The next progress update will be available by late September 2015.
