The UK’s approach to funding the UN humanitarian system – new approach paper

10 May 2018

We are conducting a performance review to assess how well DFID uses its influence as a major funder of the United Nations (UN) humanitarian system to improve the effectiveness and value for money of multilateral humanitarian aid.

This review will cover the evolution of DFID’s funding of UN humanitarian agencies since 2011. The focus will be on core funding mechanisms, linked to DFID’s Multilateral Development Review and its predecessors. It will also consider how core funding works alongside DFID funding to UN agencies in particular crises, and whether in-country funding practices are consistent with and supportive of DFID’s objectives and approach at the headquarters level.
