U.N.’s Central Emergency Response Fund Reaches $450M Annual Goal, But More Needed To Address Multiple Humanitarian Crises

U.N. News Centre: U.N. emergency response fund reaches annual goal of $450 million, but more needed
“The United Nations global emergency response fund has reached its 2017 funding target of $450 million, but much more is required given that the number of people in need of assistance is at a record high. … Recognizing that a larger and more robust fund is critical, the U.N. General Assembly last year endorsed the expansion of [the Central Emergency Response Fund’s (CERF)] annual funding target from the current $450 million to $1 billion in 2018…” (10/9).
