The 10 Crises with the Largest Value of Shortfalls (US$)

(As at October 10, 2003)

These data show funding shortfalls of the WFP's relief projects with the largest shortfalls in $US. 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.

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