Humanitarian needs: inter-agency appeals, funding and visibility Inter-agency appeal analysis and public awareness

In 2014, appeal funding requirements increased by 38 per cent compared with 2013. There have been eight new appeals since 2013, bringing the total to 27 in 2014. There were three level-three emergencies: Central African Republic (CAR), the Philippines (Super Typhoon Haiyan) and Syria. A record number of inter-agency appeals surpassed the billion-dollar mark (Iraq, South Sudan, the Syria Regional Refugee Response Plan and the Syria Humanitarian Assistance Response Plan). The majority of funding requested and provided went to these mega-crises. Iraq, South Sudan and the Syria response plans accounted for approximately 55 per cent of funding required and requested. Globally, the average amount of funding received per person increased by $28 to $182. In 2014, only four per cent of projects were gender-specific, showing no increase from previous years.
