By UN Eritrea,
ERITREA is building its own development solutions. The goal of the UN System in Eritrea is to provide quality advisory services, share best practices and support government efforts to build capacity to address development challenges related to basic social services, capacity development, disaster risk management, food security, and gender in the context of the Strategic Partnership Cooperation Framework (SPCF) 2013 – 2016.
To achieve this, we call both strengthened practical partnerships with other actors, but also financial resources to continue, and reinforce, the impact of our work on the ground.
Since 2006, therefore, partners in Eritrea received US$34 million in total from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF). The funds have been directed towards programs in nutrition; health; water; sanitation and hygiene and food security sectors.
In 2013, US$6.3 million was allocated for nutrition, health and livelihoods activities. Another US$2.5 million has been set aside in mid-2014 to support nutrition, health and food security interventions in Southern Red Sea (SRS), Northern Red Sea (NRS), Debub, Gash Barka and Anseba regions. All recent CERF interventions have been closely aligned and coordinated with the Strategic Partnership Cooperation Framework (2013 – 2016).
