2019 IN REVIEW
This Annual Report presents information on the achievements of the UHF during the 2019 calendar year. However, because grant allocation, project implementation and reporting processes often take place over multiple years (CBPFs are designed to support ongoing and evolving humanitarian responses), the achievement of CBPFs are reported in the following years.
Information on allocations granted in 2019 (shown in blue). This method considers intended impact of the allocations rather than achieved results as project implementation and reporting often continues into the subsequent year and results information is not immediately available at the time of publication of annual reports.
Considering that the UHF became operational in June 2019, and launched the first allocation in July 2019, the partners who are implementing projects have not yet reported achievements. As projects from the first allocation are implemented, partners will report on the results achieved, and these will be captured and reported in the Grant Management System (GMS).
Going forward, and in line with the annual reports for other CBPFs, the reporting on the results of the first allocation will be captured in the subsequent year. This method provides a more complete picture of achievements during a given calendar year but includes results from allocations that were granted in previous years.
Figures for people targeted and reached may sometimes include double counting as individuals often receive aid from multiple cluster/sectors.
Contributions are recorded based on the exchange rate when the cash was received which may differ from the Certified Statement of Accounts that records contributions based on the exchange rate at the time of the pledge.
Humanitarian situation in 2019
In 2019, the crisis in eastern Ukraine entered its fifth year and civilians continued to bear its heaviest brunt. Since 2014, over 3,300 civilians have been killed while more than 7,000 have been injured in the hostilities that are most intense near the ‘contact line’ – the 427-km-long line, which is about the length of the French-German border, that splits the affected areas into those under the Government’s control (GCA) and those outside the Government's control (NGCA).
