The Consolidated Appeal Process (CAP) is the main humanitarian funding appeal mechanism in South Sudan. The first South Sudan appeal was launched in July during the 2011 CAP mid-year review process, replacing the Sudan Humanitarian Work Plan which previously covered all parts of Sudan.
There are four main funding mechanisms for projects in the CAP:
- Bilateral donors provide the bulk of funding for projects in the CAP.
- The Sudan Common Humanitarian Fund (CHF) was available to fund urgent humanitarian activities outlined in the Sudan Humanitarian Work Plan. By June 2011 just over US$43 million was allocated from the Sudan CHF to projects in South Sudan. Discussions for a possible CHF in the new Republic of South Sudan have been initiated by the humanitarian community.
- The Central Emergency Response Fund has provided funding to large emergencies in the South since 2006 for projects within and outside the CAP.
The Basic Services Fund has been operational since 2005 and directly finances local and international non-governmental organizations to deliver basic services through primary education, primary health, and water and sanitation projects in or outside the CAP.
