Needs and funding requirements (UNHCR Global Appeal 2016-2017)

The humanitarian system at large is faced with a critical financial dilemma: while the numbers of people forcibly displaced across the world continue to rise, the funds available for humanitarian aid are not keeping up with the rapidly expanding needs. By the third quarter of 2015, 33 UN appeals were only 42 per cent funded, and UNHCR’s voluntary contributions stood at just 40 per cent of its current budget for 2015, including supplementary requirements. This chapter presents an overview of the needs and funding requirements of UNHCR.
