The evolution of country-based pooled funds

Country-based pooled funds (CBPFs) are multi-donor humanitarian financing instruments established by the Emergency Relief Coordinator (ERC). These innovative humanitarian funds allow governments and private donors alike to pool their contributions to support a specific emergency. CBPFs are managed by OCHA at the country-level under the leadership of the Humanitarian Coordinator (HC). They complement other sources of funding, are field-driven and aligned with country humanitarian response plans (HRPs). This ensures that flexible, coordinated, inclusive and needs-based funding is available and prioritized at the local level by the relief partners closest to people in need.
