Increase collaborative humanitarian multi-year planning and funding is one of the workstreams that progressed significantly and positively in the past two years, especially in documenting the impact of multi-year, collaborative and flexible planning and multi-year funding instruments.
According to the annual independent report (2018), both donors and aid organizations have shown strong leadership and significant buy-in to the commitments, which has also allowed for direct engagement with other workstreams such as the humanitarian-development nexus.
In the past two years, a number of donors have scaled up their provision of multi-year funding, although there is still a number of legal and political challenges being faced and a lack of evidence of progress on the provision of it to multi-year humanitarian response plans.
Multi-year funding is key to allow more predictable, flexible and longer-term funding, lower administrative costs, effective, and efficiency programming in the humanitarian sector. These factors strengthen preparedness and resilience particularly in the context where humanitarian needs are protracted and recurrent.
