Contributions in 2015

In 2015 the HPF Yemen received a total of US$56.7 million in contributions, which together with a carryover of US$9.1 million, brought the total available to US$65.8 million, representing 7.4 per cent of the funding received against the 2015 Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) for Yemen (US$893m). Some US$55 million were channelled to partners or committed in support of life-saving assistance to 3.4 million people affected by conflict. The balance of the funds was rolled into 2016.

The United Kingdom was the largest donor to the HPF in 2015 with contributions amounting to US$27.9 million, or 49 per cent of the total available HPF funding. The second and third largest donors were the Netherlands and Sweden contributing US$13.5 million and US$6.8 million respectively. Additional contributions were also received from Switzerland, Denmark, Germany, Ireland and the Republic of Korea.

Complementarity with CERF Funding

From June to September, the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) made four allocations totalling US$ 44 million through the Rapid Response window in support of the humanitarian response in Yemen. The HPF 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$ 99 million. 

Reporting on the HPF Activities
The HC, supported by OCHA and in close consultation with the Cluster Coordinators, will publish a narrative Annual Report of the HPF 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 HPF Annual Report is issued around May-June 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 HPF activities in Yemen.
