1. Key points
According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA)’s Financial Tracking Service (FTS), donors have committed/contributed US$37.1million of humanitarian assistance to Sudan since the start of 2016. In 2015, a total of US$650.1 million was committed/contributed.
In 2015, over half of this humanitarian assistance, US$338.9 million, was directed to projects explicitly described as assisting displaced populations in Sudan, of which 11% was directed to the regions of Darfur and Jebel. Further funding may be directed to these areas but not explicitly labelled as such.
CERF will allocate US$7 million to Sudani for support to internally displaced persons, refugees and host communities as part of its first allocation round from the underfunded emergencies window in 2016.
The appeal planning process for 2016 has not yet been finalised for Sudan. Operations will focus on multi-sector activities and links with longer term development efforts.
