Humanitarian support to UNICEFs country programs during 2014-2017 in nutrition, health, child protection, WASH and emergency education.

Expected results

The support has concerned a four year agreement period between UNICEF and Sida's humanitarian unit (HUM) for its humanitarian response to a number of prioritised crises between 2014-2017. The total Swedish contribution by Sida was 1 010 898 010 SEK during these four years. The objective during the four years has been to save lives and alleviate suffering for the most disadvantaged children in the world; in nutrition, health, water and sanitation and hygiene, as well as in emergency education, child protection and gender-based violence (GBV). During the first year of the agreement period (2014) also included funding directed to the ebola outbreak in West Africa.      

Results

The support has concerned a four year period with the first three years  (2014-2016) upheld through the Swedish Strategy for Humanitarian support 2011-2016 and the final fourth year (2017) being part of the new strategy for the period 2017-2021). The majority of Sida HUM's contribution has been for the UNICEF HAC:s (Humanitarian Assistance for Children) and have been treated as humanitarian country programme funds (unearmarked) while a few programmes have been earmarket to ceratin thematic areas within the HAC:s. The prioritisation has been led by Sida HUM through its HCA (Humanitarian Crises Analysis) processes on an annual basis. UNICEF provides annual CER:s reporting for each context on a country basis reporting on what has been achieved compared to each HAC. In addition to that Sida receives the global humanitarian annual report of UNICEF and a two-pager for each financed context for a more detailed information on what exactly the Swedish funds have been directed to. For 2014, Sida financed UNICEF's humanitarian programmes with the total amount of 177.5 MSEK which contributed to some of the following worldwide humanitarian results (as per the annual global humanitarian report):- 1.8 million children treated for severe acute malnutrition (70 per cent of planned target);- 16 million children were vaccinated against measles (81 percent of target);- 13 million people were provided with access to safe water for drinking, bathing and cooking (77 per cent oftarget);- 1.8 million children (66 percent of target) received psycho-social support;- 2 million children were provided with access to improved education, both formal and informal (58 per cent oftarget); and- With the Ebola outbreak in 2014, some of UNlCEF'S achievements included: established and supported morethan 50 Community Care Centres and rapid isolation facilities with a bed capacity of 500; 30 000 children affectedby the outbreak beneitted from psycho-social support; 4 100 metric tonnes (MT) of Ebola related commoditieswere shipped; more than 50 000 community volunteers, health workers, religious Ieaders and youth weremobilized; 1 400 Community Watch Committees were established; and 1 million children received educationthrough remote programming while schools were closed. Support from Sida has contributed to reaching the most vulnerable populations in some of the most challenging contexts in the world. For 2015, Sida financed UNICEF's humanitarian programmes with the total amount of 184 MSEK. Sida supported UNICEF with funding of 16 countries and one region (i.e the floods in Malawi and Mozambique, earthquake in Nepal and the deteriorating situations in CAR, South Sudan, Yemen, Syria, Nigeria and Iraq). Some of the global results achieved by UNICEF during 2015 for which the Swedish financing has contributed towards are:- 2 million children treated for severe acute malnutrition (69 per cent of planned target);- 1.3 million children were vaccinated against measles (62 per cent of target);- 22.6 million people were provided with access to safe water for drinking, bathing andcooking (94 per cent of target);- 2 million children (74 percent of target) received psycho-social support;- 4 million children were provided with access to improved education, both formal andinformal (45 per cent of target); and- Since the Ebola outbreak in 2014, UNICEF'S achievements in Sierra Leone.
