In 2022, despite security and logistical challenges, and the impact of the war in Ukraine on the price and availability of fuel and the cost of operations, humanitarian actors provided assistance to 1.9 million people in at least one sector, or 93 per cent of the 2022 Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) target. Of the US$461.3 million required, 91 per cent had been mobilized by 31 December 2022. In order to reach the far northern towns on the border with Sudan, 59 humanitarian staff and 10 tons of supplies were transported by helicopter rotations as part of assessment and rapid response missions.

Despite the level of funding, clusters such as education, nutrition, water, hygiene, and sanitation, emergency shelter, and the gender-based violence (GBV) and child protection sub-sectors remain underfunded and deserve special attention.
