Acting ahead of crises: how far do we go?

Analysis of humanitarian financing from 2014 - 2019 found that funding pre-organised in advance, based on pre-agreed triggers or plans (predominantly through regional risk pools and anticipatory humanitarian action systems) was equivalent to less than 1% of the UN appeals funding. However, more than 50% of humanitarian crises are somewhat predictable.
