- This is the fourth report in the “Resources for Results” series, published by the United Nations Office of the Special Envoy on Ebola. It provides an overview of the funding pledged and disbursed by contributing partners to support Ebola response, recovery and research efforts. Further, it reports on funds expended by recipient entities involved in responding to the outbreak in the three affected countries of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
- The content is based primarily on the responses of contributing partners and recipients to a request for information sent by the Office of the United Nations Special Envoy on Ebola in late-May and early-June 2015. In instances where a response was not provided, information about contributing partner funding contained in the previous report in the series, “Resources for Results III”, dated February 2015 (updated on 7 April 2015),1 is reflected in this report.
- The report is divided into two sections. The first summarises the data reported by contributing partners and the second provides a summary of the data reported by recipients.
- The report covers the period 1 September 2014 to 31 May 2015.2 All figures reflect USD millions unless otherwise indicated. Where contributing partners or recipients provided information in another currency, conversions were made on the basis of the prevailing exchange rate applicable in June 2015.
