4th Quarter -- November -- December 2010
The Regional Humanitarian Funding Update provides a quarterly overview of funding levels and trends in the countries of the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia region, mainly based on data reported to the Financial Tracking Service (FTS).
The FTS is a global, real-time database that records all reported international humanitarian aid, including that for UN agencies, NGOs, the Red Cross/Red Crescent Movement, bilateral aid, in-kind aid, and private donations. All FTS data are provided by donors or recipient organisations. Reporting is easy and it provides visibility for everyone. More importantly, a well defined picture of needs and gaps contributes to a more coordinated approach to humanitarian assistance and helps to identify where funding gaps exist. For more information, please visit http://fts.unocha.org
OCHA does not claim that the figures in this Update are fully comprehensive.
Extracts from the CAP 2011
In the occupied Palestinian territory, entrenched vulnerability remains a reality. Indeed, the situation by the end of 2010 was characterized by on-going political stalemate, regular exposure to violence, continuing restrictions on access and movement and persistent human rights violations, all factors leading to a protracted humanitarian situation. Macro-economic improvements conceal vast disparities on the ground, with increasing exposure to chronic poverty for many, and great concerns over longer-term prospects. They also fail to alleviate the protection crisis faced by most Palestinians, for whom few rights are secure.
