- According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA)’s Financial Tracking Service (FTS), donors have committed/contributed US$11.5 million of humanitarian assistance to Nigeria so far in 2015.
- The UN-coordinated 2015 Strategic Response Plan (SRP) for Nigeria requests US$100.3 million from donors to respond to the crisis. The appeal is currently 10% funded at US$10.3 million, a further US$1.3 million has been contributed or committed outside the appeal.
- The 2015 SRP notes that the humanitarian presence in Nigeria has been minor but is rapidly expanding. It also states that “the limited presence of humanitarian actors in the north east is due not only to insecurity but also to a lack of donor funding.”
