II. FUNDING - Financial Tracking Systems (www.reliefweb.int/fts)

Consolidated Appeal (CAP): Zimbabwe 2006

- The current level of 44% funding for CAP projects is encouraging to the humanitarian community in the country. However, most of the funding has gone to the food sector, which is 81% funded, and coordination and support services, which is 60% funded. It is important to note that while the 2006 CAP reflects US$ 90.3m as contributions to the food sector, 96% of these contributions were received prior to the CAP launch in 2005 but utilized in 2006. (See tables on page 7)

- The CAP is a common planning, programming, advocacy and fundraising document aimed at coordinated humanitarian response and produced by the collective efforts of the humanitarian community, namely the UN, government, NGOs and donors. Its success therefore depends on the active participation of these parties. For more information on the 2006 CAP funding please refer to the website links below;
