DEADLINE for submissions of concept notes: Tuesday 3rd May 2016 at 18h Amman & Sana’a time

The Humanitarian Pooled Fund (HPF) for Yemen was established early 2015 under the leadership of the Humanitarian Coordinator (HC). The objectives of the Yemen HPF are to promote needs-based assistance in accordance with humanitarian principles, respond to the most urgent needs, strengthen cluster coordination system and reinforce the leadership of the HC.

This allocation strategy paper is the result of consultations with stakeholders from March 2016 onwards; including national and international NGOs, UN agencies, the Inter-Cluster Coordination Mechanism (ICCM) and the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT). The HPF Advisory Board (AB) provided feedback on the strategy paper at a meeting on 18th April, before the final endorsement by the HC.
