South Sudan Humanitarian Fund First Standard Allocation 2021

The South Sudan Humanitarian Fund (SSHF) allocated US$49.5 million to 54 humanitarian organizations through the first standard allocation for 2021, targeting an estimated 1.7 million vulnerable people. The allocation provided much-needed resources to support the immediate humanitarian response to acute needs and mitigate the risks of food insecurity, the consequences of COVID-19 and address protection needs.

The allocation focused on three thematic areas: supporting people affected by food insecurity in IPC 4 and 5 areas (envelope 1), supporting people in six displacement sites (envelope 2) and supporting critical enablers, such as logistics, community engagement and data collection (envelope 3). The SSHF prioritized support for people affected by food insecurity, allocating $28 million or 56 per cent of the total allocation to envelope 1. For the first time, the fund provided robust support to internally displaced people by allocating $17 million or 34 per cent of the total allocation to envelope 2.
