DRC - Humanitarian Fund - Annual Report 2016

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Since its creation in 2006, the DRC Humanitarian Fund (DRC HF) has mobilized nearly $9681 million and allocated more than $950 million through 1,316 projects.

In 2016, the DRC HF continued to play a vital role as a timely and flexible funding instrument, supporting the humanitarian community to achieve its goals by funding the most critical needs identified in the HRP and responding rapidly to new emergencies throughout the year. The DRC HF received $45.4 million from six donors and allocated $57.3 million to 66 projects, of which almost 90 per cent were implemented by NGOs.

Contributions were received from Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom for a total of $45.4 million, a slight increase from 2015 contributions of $41 million. This represents 65 per cent of the DRC HF’s target for the year, which was $70 million (10 per cent of the HRP’s requirements of $690 million). The HRP 2016 received $414.8 million in contributions of which 11 per cent was channelled through the DRC HF.
