Humanitarian needs - inter-agency appeals, funding and visibility

During 2013, humanitarian organizations’ requirements increased yet again, with the crisis in Syria playing a large role in driving funding requirements upwards to new heights. The Syria response plans received the largest amount of overall funding – 38 per cent of appeal funding ($3.1 billion). This amount was larger than the combined funding received by DRC, Somalia, South Sudan and Sudan. Together, these appeals had accounted for over half of funding requirements and funding provided in recent years. The size of appeals varied widely, from $70 million for Djibouti to $2.9 billion for the Syria Regional Response Plan. The number of people targeted per appeal also varied widely, from 300,000 in Djibouti to 14.7 million in DRC. Globally, the average amount of funding received per person was $154.
