Development Policy Centre Policy Brief No. 12
It is anomalous that the world is equipped with no global humanitarian financing mechanism akin to existing global investment vehicles for tackling infectious diseases and climate change. A global humanitarian fund, properly constituted, could help meet the $10 billion annual humanitarian financing shortfall, complementing crisis-specific mechanisms and directing most of its resources to protracted crises.
