  • 58 per cent of the funds ($47.1 million) supported front-line activities, 30 per cent ($24.5 million) the procurement and delivery of common core pipeline supplies, and 12 per cent ($9.7 million) the provision of common services.

  • 51 per cent of the funds ($41.3 million) went to UN agencies (including $34.2 million for core pipelines and common services), while 37 per cent went to international NGOs ($30 million) and 12 per cent to national NGOs ($10 million).
