SOUTH SUDAN HUMANITARIAN FUND Quarterly Dashboard (January-March 2019)

During the first quarter of 2019, the South Sudan Humanitarian Fund received contributions from Sweden (US$5.4 million), Ireland ($4.5 million), Denmark ($3.8 million) and Australia ($2.8 million), adding to the $51.6 million carried forward from 2018 and accrued interest.

The first standard allocation of the year provided $34.4 million to address people’s highest priority needs under the roll-out of the 2019 Humanitarian Response Plan, which seeks $1.5 billion to reach 5.7 million people. The funds supported 96 organizations to initiate frontline projects across 28 counties. Health, Protection, Nutrition, and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene were the highest-funded clusters, together receiving two thirds of the total allocation.

The allocation strategy prioritized life-saving activities that are immediately implementable; integrated programming across clusters in a set of common geographical locations; and responses that were ”as local as possible”. Non-governmental organizations received 82 per cent of the total amount allocated, with 39 per cent channelled to South Sudanese organizations.
