    • 7. Main difference: the CHF has two funding windows
      • Twice a year, the Humanitarian Coordinator allocates funding to clusters , based on humanitarian needs and priorities
      • The allocation to individual projects takes place at cluster level
      • For these discussions at cluster level, an NGO co-lead works together with the cluster lead
      • The cluster submits a list of projects and the funding level for each to the HC for final approval
      • Project duration: up to 1 year
      • Budget: up to $500,000
      Slide Standard allocations FROM ERF TO CHF 1 2 A B Emergency Reserve C Humanitarian and Development Partnership Team CAR | www.hdptcar.net 3 The HC will keep an emergency reserve (<20%) The reserve will be used to respond to breaking emergencies and to fill gaps in the humanitarian response Organisations can submit projects to the reserve at any time, through a cluster or the Advisory Board Project duration: 6 months Budget: up to $300,000
    • 8. The main objectives stay the same
      • Enable NGOs and UN agencies to respond quickly and effectively to worsening situation by:
        • Making funds available for priority, underfunded CAP projects
        • Making funds available to cover start-up costs
        • Making funds available in cases of rapidly changing circumstances and humanitarian needs where gaps need to be filled and other donor mechanisms are unavailable
      • Ensure humanitarian needs are addressed in collaborative spirit, fostering understanding and coordination within and between clusters and humanitarian organisations
      Slide Respond to needs, support coordination CHF OBJECTIVES 1 2 A B Support start-up, cover gaps C Humanitarian and Development Partnership Team CAR | www.hdptcar.net
    • 9. The ERF has been strengthened for a smooth move to the CHF
      • Donor/NGO/UN missions monitor and evaluate selected projects
      • Priority, underfunded CAP projects are now also eligible for ERF funding
      • A new website to improve transparency
      • Members of the Advisory Board are elected for better oversight
      • With an online ERF/CHF database, project administration has improved
      • Translating documents in both English and French eases accessibility
      • OCHA has reinforced its ERF/CHF team

    • 10. Advantages of the CHF
      • The CHF allows for more strategic humanitarian funding , while keeping a reserve for rapid response
      • More predictable funding, earlier in the year with standard allocations
      • The CHF has a more robust structure than the ERF, particularly with the standard allocation model
      • Donors decided to put in place a CHF in CAR, so there might well be more, and additional funding in 2008
      • Donors that don’t have a presence in CAR can fund humanitarian action without important administrative investments
      Slide Simple, standardized design for strategic humanitarian funding and rapid response WHAT’S NEW WITH THE CHF 1 2 3 4 Humanitarian and Development Partnership Team CAR | www.hdptcar.net 5
