The Common Humanitarian Fund (CHF) supports urgent humanitarian activities outlined in the HWP, through regular Standard Allocations and additional Emergency Allocations. In 2012, the CHF allocated $76.8 million to projects in Sudan. The Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) enhances response to time-critical emergencies and strengthens humanitarian response in underfunded emergencies. In 2012, CERF supported, among other projects, a $2.5 million rapid response to a Yellow Fever outbreak. It also provided $13.9 million to support projects in Darfur, which is an underfunded emergency with immense needs. Bilateral donors support UN agencies and INGO partners directly.
