Donors at the triple nexus: lessons from the United Kingdom: Appendix 6

UK aid for countries in protracted crisis

This appendix includes information on volumes of UK humanitarian assistance and developmental (non-humanitarian) ODA for countries experiencing protracted crisis or entering into protracted crisis response in 2018 and 2019: Iraq, Nigeria, Syria, Somalia and Yemen.

The criteria we have used to define countries in protracted crisis response is as follows.

  1. Protracted crisis response countries: countries which had UN-coordinated country response plans in place for at least five consecutive years in any point during the period 2000–2017.
  2. Countries entering into protracted crisis response: countries which had UN-coordinated country response plans in place for least five consecutive years as of 2018 or 2019.

For Iraq and Nigeria, it is not possible to demonstrate five consecutive years of data as they entered into protracted crisis response (i.e., with a first year of a UN-coordinated appeal) in 2014 and 2015 respectively, and 2017 is the most recent year for which OECD/DAC data is available for recipient countries.

For consistency, Figures 7 to 11 show the total volume of humanitarian assistance received over the five-year period 2013–2017. However, this may not reflect the first five years of protracted crisis for some countries which have received funds through UN-coordinated appeals for many more years, such as Somalia which has been receiving funds through a UN-coordinated appeal since 2000.
