The Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) is one of the fastest and most effective ways to enable urgent life-saving humanitarian action for people affected by crises anywhere in the world.
HOW CERF WORKS
Established in 2005 as the UN’s global emergency response fund, CERF pools contributions from donors around the world into a single fund allowing humanitarian responders to deliver life-saving assistance whenever and wherever crises hit.
Why we need FTS
Providing a unique service for the humanitarian community since 1992
Provides globally comparable data
Continuously updated to support coordination and decision-making
Curates data, verifying its accuracy, triangulating and cross-checking

FORMULATION AND VALIDATION OF THE 2018, REGIONAL CASH WORKING GROUP – WORKPLAN
How is advocacy best done for financing of education and the SDG goal 4, especially in situations of emergency and conflict? Is good advocacy about gathering evidence and data, and then meeting influential people with fat check-books? Or is it better to be out on the streets, mobilising grass-roots and sharing stories of injustice?
OCHA’s Financial Tracking Service (FTS), the Centre for Humanitarian Data, IATI technical team and Development Initiatives are running a pilot project that aims to provide an automated way for organizations to publish information about their humanitarian funding and activities. Over the course of 2018, five organizations will trial using the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) standard to share data with OCHA’s Financial Tracking Service (FTS).

There are many devastating numbers on Syria, and you’ve probably seen most of them. 7 years long. 400,000 lives lost. 6 million displaced. 5 million refugees.
Here’s an important one you may not have seen: 0.9%.

As Prepared for Delivery
Good morning Excellencies, distinguished, Ladies and Gentlemen. First let me thank His Excellencies Ambassadors Blanchard and Rattray for their invitation to speak to you about innovative finance.
Despite calls to reform and “localise” the response to humanitarian crises, two thirds of the money went to just 13 major groups
The numbers are in: 2017 was another costly year for humanitarian aid donors, but despite huge needs in Yemen, Syria, South Sudan, and elsewhere, funding levels have stagnated.

FIRST RESERVE ALLOCATION - PAOUA
The wave of violence observed since the end of December in the localities of Pessah, Bioko, Bémol, Bah-Bassar, Bédière, Mia-Pende, Gouzi, Bioko, located in the sub-prefecture of Paoua, prefecture of Ouham-Pende has generated a massive displacement of population from peripheral axis towards the city of Paoua.
At the beginning of February 2018, the number of people in need of humanitarian assistance was estimated around about 100,000 persons including 60,000 displaced persons and 40,000 persons from host community.
PREMIERE ALLOCATION DE RESERVE - PAOUA
La vague de violences observée depuis la fin décembre dans les localités de Pessah, Bioko, Bémol, Bah-Bassar, Bédière, Mia-Pende, Gouzi, Bioko, situées dans la sous-préfecture de Paoua, préfecture de l’Ouham-Pende a engendré un déplacement massif de population situées sur les axes périphériques vers la ville de Paoua.
Le trimestre écoulé a été marqué par une poursuite et une intensification des violences armées dans les préfectures de la Nana-Gribizi, la Ouaka, l’Ouham, l’Ouham Pende et de la Haute Kotto. Cette situation a provoqué des déplacements de population, comme à Bria qui a accueilli 20 000 nouveaux déplacés, et des exactions tant contre les civils que les acteurs humanitaires. Dans certaines zones comme à Kaga Bandoro, cette insécurité a aussi causé le pillage des bases et l’arrêt temporaire des activités des partenaires humanitaires.
Message du directeur général
On peut agir autrement La Déclaration de New York pour les réfugiés et les migrants signée en septembre 2016 envisageait une coopération et un partage des responsabilités plus large à l’échelle internationale. Elle appelait également à élaborer deux « pactes mondiaux ».
2017 was a brutal year.
In 2015, the international community committed to the Sustainable Development Goals, including Goal 4, which is to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. That same year, in Addis Ababa, multilateral development banks committed to work together to assist countries to generate the needed financial resources. In this context, we welcome the proposal for the International Finance Facility for Education. Urgent and unparalleled action is needed to create a learning generation.
