CHF Afghanistan - First Standard Allocation Strategy Paper & Annexes (March 2015)

The Common Humanitarian Fund (CHF) for Afghanistan was established in January 2014 under the leadership of the Humanitarian Coordinator (HC). The objectives of the Afghanistan CHF are to promote needs-based assistance in accordance with humanitarian principles, to respond to the most urgent needs, and strengthen coordination and leadership through priority clusters and the HC.

The total amount of funding available from the CHF Afghanistan under the 2015 First Standard Allocation is US$22 million. This strategy paper outlines the sectors and activities eligible for funding under this allocation based on general rounds of consultation held from early January 2015 onwards with different stakeholders, and on priorities outlined in strategy papers submitted by each Cluster. The CHF Advisory Board (AB) met on 24 February 2015 to review the most pressing humanitarian needs in Afghanistan under each sector and their alignment with the Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) 2015, as well as overall funding requirements, and made a decision on the envelopes available for funding.
