Start Fund Impact Report

Over the last decade, the humanitarian sector has been heavily impacted by more frequent and severe climate-related crises. We need a more proactive, faster and locally led humanitarian system where communities are supported to analyse risks, create plans and have access to pre-arranged financing to prevent loss of life and livelihoods.

Start Fund has been operational since 2014 and is collectively owned and managed by Start Network members. It is currently supported by the UK Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office, the German Federal Foreign Office, the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, the IKEA Foundation, the Irish Governments’ Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Jersey Overseas Aid, and the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
