Arab Today, arab today Donours pledge $500.8m for UNHCR operations in 2015

UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres
Geneva - KUNA

The UN High Commission of Refugees (UNHCR), said on Wednesday that government donors promised an initial USD 500.8 million for the work of the UN refugee agency to help almost 43 million forcibly displaced or stateless people worldwide next year.
"Faced with multiple mega emergencies in the middle-east and Africa, UNHCR presented its total financial requirements of USD 6.23 billion for 2015 at its annual pledging report, the largest budget ever at the beginning of the year", said the UNHCR in a press release from its headquarters in Geneva.
UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres thanked the donors for their strong and steadfast support, but warned that the gap between needs and available humanitarian funding was widening." "More people are fleeing war, violence, and persecution than ever before. Emergencies in Syria, the Central African Republic and South Sudan are turning into protracted displacement situations, bringing the world's humanitarian financing system close to bankruptcy," he said in the same press release.
"We need additional and more predictable ways of funding these emergences", he added.
Guterres also thanked the refugee hosting countries for their ongoing support and acknowledged: "the tremendous pressure that the large presence of refugees has on local resources, public services and facilities. More structural and development support is needed to help communities host refugees fleeing war and violence".
Over the last five years, financial requirements have more than doubled, as the numbers of forcibly displaced people continues to increase.
For 2014, the UN refugee agency still requires USD 6.6 billion to assist millions of refugees, internally displaced and stateless people and to find solutions for them. To date, it has received USD 3.19 billion, or less than half of what it needs. While this allows the organization to cover the most basic needs such as water, sanitation, health and rudimentary shelter, important long-term activities such as vocational skills training, promoting livelihood activities or secondary education remain often underfunded.
