CERF online information tools
In 2020, CERF and the CBPFs launched online tools that provide real-time information complementing the Pooled Funds’ annual reports. The CERF online allocation tracker provides real-time information for each CERF allocation. With the development of the online tracker, CERF also developed a service that offers stakeholders the option of receiving e-mail notifications of new CERF allocations as soon as these are decided. In addition, the CERF Data Hub, provides a wide array of interactive visuals on CERF funding, allowing stakeholders to easily access data on how CERF grants are allocated across global humanitarian operations.
OCHA has also recently launched a new Pooled Funds Data Hub which aims to increase the transparency of OCHA’s humanitarian financing mechanisms by providing a one-stop gateway to CERF and CBPF funding data. It allows users to analyze country-level allocations across OCHA Pooled Funds through an interactive interface, increasing the efficiency of information gathering and significantly enhancing allocation visibility and transparency.
