News and Press Release
Originally published


The Sudan Humanitarian Fund (SHF) receives contributions from donors – mainly governments – into a single fund, with the aspiration of reaching 15 percent of the total humanitarian funding requirements in Sudan. The money is used for humanitarian operations on a rolling basis through regular allocation rounds or is set aside for future response to in–country emergencies. The SHF reinforces and relies on existing humanitarian coordination structures, which allows for evidencebased prioritization and complementarity with in-country humanitarian, development and peacebuilding funding mechanisms and donors. A positioning paper has been developed for the SHF to highlight the main strategic focus for 2017 and to serve as an overarching framework for 2017 allocations.
