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.
