Grant to UN emergency fund Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), 2018

Beneficiary: Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF)

Amount: 600.000 euro (annual funding)

Duration: 2018

The Central Emergency Response Fund of the United Nations provides support to victims of armed conflicts and natural disasters in a timely and reliable way. By increasing the advanced financing, CERF can react swift and flexible when humanitarian disasters occur. 

Since 2011, Flanders has been annually contributing to the emergency fund. In 2016, the Government of Flanders decided to double the contribution to further substantiate an integrated emergency approach.

With the annual funding of CERF, Flanders wants to focus on structurally reinforcing the global humanitarian system.
