Evaluation of the Pakistan Emergency Response Fund

The Pakistan Emergency Response Fund (ERF) was endorsed by the Humanitarian Country Team
(HCT) in March 2010 and was activated 5-months later in August 2010. In its first year the ERF raised $36.6 million and funded 124 humanitarian projects with the aim of reaching 3.8 million people. 110 projects addressed the needs of flood-affected communities while 14 projects met needs arising out of conflict. The funds have been channelled to 87 different implementing partners with 56% allocated to national non-governmental organisations (NNGOs), 39% to international nongovernmental organisations (INGOs) and 5% to United Nations (UN) agencies.
