OCHA / UNDP, Sudan Humanitarian Fund (SHF) 2016

Progetto concluso

The Sudan Humanitarian Fund (SHF) is a pooled fund which allows responding to unexpected emergencies in a coordinated and effective way in Sudan. In 2016 alone the SHF was capable to provide funds to partners to alleviate the suffering of hundreds of thousands of new refuges, new IDPs and other new victims, due to conflicts, natural disasters and health hazards. The SHF is a unique instrument whose Advisory Board offers to the SDC – actually the smallest SHF donor in terms of financial contributions - the platform to advocate for victims in need of assistance and protection as well as humanitarian policy.

Contesto Year by year Sudan is the theatre of new humanitarian crisis. In 2016 renewed clashes in Darfur’s Jebel Marra have caused the displacement of additional 160’000 persons, over 90’000 new refugees have arrived from South Sudan, 400’000 farmers have been affected by El Nino, more than 200’000 persons have lost assets by floods and these days over 100 people have died by the so-called Acute Water Diarrhoea (AWD). This in addition to the 15% of the over 38 million population of Sudan who are since longer time in need of assistance and protection.
Obiettivi The provision of timely, coordinated, principled assistance to save lives, alleviate suffering and maintain human dignity.
Gruppi target The potential target group is determined by the HRP 2016 which is focussing on 4.6 million persons in need of assistance and protections across Sudan.
