I. Overview/Background

  1. The purpose of this document is to outline the strategic objectives of the first standard allocation of the Sudan Humanitarian Fund (SHF) for 2016. 1 The paper summarizes the analysis, strategy and intent of the first allocation.

  2. The prioritisation process started at the field level where priority activities and localities were discussed in several coordination structures across the country. The results were compiled and brought to the IASC sector coordinators for consultation with partners at Khartoum level. Afterwards, the SHF Technical Unit has compiled funding and funding intentions from different humanitarian and development donors and funding mechanisms in order to allow for complementarity and avoid overlap.

  3. Given that several contributions are not confirmed and a currency risk exists, the proposition is to hold back 3 million USD, which is 10% of the envelope available for allocation, till all commitments have been confirmed.

  4. Partners seeking funding from the SHF 2016 first round allocation must adhere to the guiding principles and strategic objectives outlined in this paper. Funding decisions will be made based on this. Proposals not in line with this paper will not be considered for funding.

  5. The allocation strategy is a strategic document and does not include information on processes. Please refer to the SHF Operational Manual for process related issues on
