# Humanitarian needs - sector funding

Apart from multi-sectoral programmes, in 2013 the food assistance sector was again the sector under which the most funds were requested ($2.7 billion and$2.4 billion respectively). Emergency food aid is a vital part of humanitarian response, but there is no concrete evidence that the same levels of support are being channelled to activities that promote the long-term resilience of affected communities. In 2013, mine action received extra funding, making it the best funded sector with 190 per cent of requirements met. This was likely due to ad hoc funding for particular projects, as the sector tends to be under funded. Over the last five years, its funding average has been 44 per cent.
