This year’s Private Funding Report provides analysis of the money coming from private sources – such as companies, foundations and individuals – that contributed to the international humanitarian response between 2006 and 2011, using financial information from our unique study set of 78 international NGOs, as well as Red Cross and UN agencies. It considers the increasingly important role of private financing (in 2011 private money is thought to have made up over 25% of the international humanitarian response), where it comes from, and where it gets spent.
The report also discusses the relative lack of transparency in private funding compared with government and institutional funding, and considers ways to improve reporting so that we can have a clearer picture of all resources available for humanitarian response. This would support efforts to better allocate funding according to need, thereby making more efficient and effective use of the money available.
