As a result of unprecedented civil unrest across a number of countries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), national societies and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent (IFRC) have responded to the humanitarian crisis resulting from population movement and conflict.
The current amount appealed for in the Emergency Appeal is CHF 15,145,920 targeting a total of 300,000 beneficiaries. This covers operations in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Tunisia and Yemen. The IFRC has deployed many of its global tools in response to the crisis including allocations from DREF, the deployment of surge capacity in the form of FACT and ERUs. Regional resources including RDRTs have also been deployed as well as bilateral coordinated responses from sister national societies in the region.
The International Federation has commissioned this evaluation to “assess the on-going IFRC response to the MENA crisis to inform continued response and preparedness in the MENA region, as well as future global emergency relief operations”.
