Bridging the Needs-Based Funding Gap

NRC|Published 15. Mar 2014
This study aims to contribute to the ongoing efforts by humanitarian actors to improve support for needs-based humanitarian action.

It provides an overview of current funding trends and existing and potential threats to needs-based funding, as well as practical recommendations to donors, the United Nations, fund managers, and NGOs to strengthen needs-based funding. Findings draw heavily from interviews with front-line humanitarian organisations, coordinating actors, and donors responding to crises in Pakistan, South Sudan, and Somalia.

This report was commissioned by the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), with assistance provided by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (NMFA).
