Seventeen consolidated appeals and two flash appeals in 2006 bring together key organisations on the ground – non-governmental organisations, the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, the United Nations, and other international organisations – to present strategic action plans and detailed project proposals for the world’s largest and most acute humanitarian crises.
