Country-based pooled funds (CBPF) are multi-donor funds that operate in countries affected by humanitarian crises. CBPF are established when a new emergency occurs or when an existing humanitarian situation worsens in degree and complexity. Resources are pooled and un-earmarked, empowering donors both big and small to support humanitarian organizations in providing lifesaving aid to those who need it most.
Through the CBPF, funding is provided to national and international NGOs, organizations of the Red Cross / Red Crescent, and UN agencies and IOM. Those experienced aid agencies are familiar with context and needs, and can make informed decisions on the ground as to how funds should be spent.
Please support global relief efforts by donating to country-based pooled funds and allow humanitarian agencies to help people in need quickly and effectively. Your donation to the OCHA managed humanitarian funds will be channelled through the United Nations Foundation.
