Humanitarian funding, 1999-2017

Source: United Nations, Financial Tracking Service - OCHA,


Since 2005, a reform of humanitarian coordination has organized global governance of humanitarian issues under the aegis of the United Nations (strengthening the role of coordinators, centralizing finances, and organizing clusters to integrate actors on the ground). The diagrams show the diversity of the funds committed, the increase in these (multiplied by three for UN agencies and by two for NGOs and the Red Cross), and the relative importance of actors (the UN represents triple the total of NGOs) as well as the inequalities between UN agencies (the World Food Program, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, and UNICEF benefit from a large share of the funds).
