Sri Lanka 2012
CERF provides $2 million to Sri Lanka
With humanitarian needs increasing, CERF allocated some US$55 million for the second underfunded emergencies window in August 2012 to bolster operations in eight neglected humanitarian emergencies.
Allocations for Afghanistan, Cameroon, Colombia, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Ethiopia, Madagascar, Sri Lanka and Sudan bring the total amount provided by CERF for underfunded emergencies this year to more than $158 million.
Thirteen countries were given nearly $104 million in the first 2012 underfunded round in January 2012.
