Funding Shortfalls of Hunger Crises in 2002


The 10 Crises with the Largest Share of Shortfalls (%)

(As at October 15, 2002)

Source: World Food Programme

These data show funding shortfalls of the WFP's relief projects with the largest percentage of shortfalls. The data include only the hunger crises for which the WFP appealed for funding. The crises include both the WFP's Protracted Relief and Recovery Operations and Emergency Operations. They only include the WFP's ongoing operations, not those already completed.

Madagascar, the Central African Republic, and Pakistan (Assistance to Afghan refugees) are not included among the 10 largest percentage shortfalls since these WFP operations were pending approval and figures still needed to be confirmed. As of October 15, 2002 the shortfalls for all these WFP operations were 100%.

The figures in US$ represent the value of food quantities.



*Resources to Raise indicates the projected level of WFP distribution in calendar year 2002 based on most recent assessment, minus carry-over stocks or carry-over contributions. The WFP revise these figures upwards throughout the year when budget revisions requiring increased commitment or new operations are approved.
