Funding trends: where does the money come from?

Humanitarian spending is usually a very small portion of financial support provided to a country. Humanitarian funding is a small proportion of overall Official Development Assistance (ODA), and it pales in comparison to development funding, remittances and foreign direct investment. Donor governments, particularly OECD-DAC Member States, tend to provide the largest contributions to humanitarian assistance, but other donors and private organizations are increasing their support. A study of a complex crisis (Iraq) and a natural disaster (Philippines) showed that funding patterns were strikingly similar, with humanitarian assistance being only a small portion of ODA, overshadowed by remittances and/or foreign direct investment.
