Funding appeals and humanitarian action updates

Mid-year update of the Haiti 2010 Humanitarian Action Report
As part of the inter-agency Flash Appeal for Haiti launched at the onset of the emergency in January and revised in February 2010, UNICEF requested US$222,757,000 for immediate needs. Thanks to the extraordinary support of donors from UNICEF National Committees, Governments and the general public, UNICEF’s acute, life-saving and immediate interventions are reaching the most affected children and women. Building on humanitarian principles in natural disasters and sustainable recovery, and on the Haiti 2010 Humanitarian Action Report, which included preparedness and disaster risk reduction elements for chronic and recurrent emergencies, UNICEF is in the process of developing a longer-term plan which will extend the emergency and recovery response for a period of 24 months. Using the Haitian Action Plan for National Recovery as the guiding framework, UNICEF has initially revised the Haiti 2010 Humanitarian Action and Recovery requirements to a total amount of US$127,243,000 up to December 2011, in order to create an additional capacity to respond to the remaining humanitarian needs and recovery requirements in Education, WASH, Nutrition, Health and Child Protection for the medium and longer terms. Once a full inter-agency plan for Haiti is developed further revisions to the programme and funding adjustments may be required. UNICEF, with its partners, will continue to support the relief operations while engaging in recovery and long-term support to Government efforts. The country remains vulnerable to natural disasters with the forthcoming rainy and hurricane season and therefore requires ongoing contingency planning and preparedness. Although longer-term objectives are starting to emerge from the Post Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA) and government plans, UNICEF is currently focusing on a two year workplan which will set the foundations towards those objectives and for sustainable development in general.
