Funding Shortfalls of Hunger Crises in 2005


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

(As at October 14, 2005)

Source: World Food Programme

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 (PRROs) and Emergency Operations. They only include the WFP's ongoing operations, not those already completed. WFP Emergency Operations and PRROs begin throughout the year and usually last between 3 months and 2 years. The data below show how much relief is needed only in 2005.

One emergency operation in Pakistan is not included among the 10 largest percentage shortfalls since the project was not set to start until October 2005. As of October 14, 2005 the shortfalls for WFP's operation in Pakistan was US$27.3 million ( 94%).

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