Data used in the report comes from a variety of sourcess. Highlights for 2015 include case studies on long-term trend analysis of the humanitarian context in terms of conflicts and natural disasters, the humanitarian footprint in the Middle East, coordination of online volunteers during the Ebola response and the anatomy of cycles of displacement.



Humanitarian needs: sector funding - Funding per sector, CERF contributions per sector

2014 saw a repeating pattern in terms of sector funding. Multisectoral programmes and the food-assistance sector continued to have the largest funding requests. Food assistance is generally the best-funded sector, but coordination and support services was the best-funded sector in 2014. It received a similar funding level in 2013 (77 per cent), so this change in pattern reflects decreasing funding levels for emergency food aid rather than increased support for coordination.
