Emergency funding for 2012

The European Commission on Friday (16 December) announced its allocation of €640 million in humanitarian funding for next year. Following a global needs assessment, the Commission allocated €102m to the Horn of Africa, €87m to north and south Sudan, and €40m-€45m each to the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Sahel region and Palestine. More than half the allocated funding goes to sub-Saharan Africa. This year, the Commission spent €1.1 billion on humanitarian aid, roughly half of it in emergency funding decisions.
