Complementarity with CERF Funding
From January to December, the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) made two allocations totalling US$ 25.6 million through the Rapid Response window in support of the humanitarian response in Yemen. The YHF was used strategically in support of NGOs to complement and augment the activities conducted by UN agencies and funded through the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF); both funds combined amounting to around US$ 151.6 million.
The HC, supported by OCHA and in close consultation with the Cluster Coordinators,will publish a narrative Annual Report of the YHF activities based on information provided through the HFU by each participating UN organisation and NGO partner. The Annual Report will feature trends, best practices, lessons learned and challenges, and showcase success stories and achievements. The YHF Annual Report is issued around April-May covering the previous calendar year and posted online. In addition, OCHA HFU will generate periodic dashboards, funding updates, human interest stories and related documents on YHF activities in Yemen.
