UNHCR Brochure on Underfunded Situations in 2017

As of September 2017, UNHCR’s budget is at an historic high of $7.763 billion, which is currently 46% funded

This growth is concurrent with the unabated levels of global displacement, with 67.7 million people of concern to UNHCR worldwide.

The funding gap is widening, now standing at 54%. Based on indications received from donors and analysis of funding trends, UNHCR estimates the gap may reduce to 47% by year’s end.

A 54% funding gap corresponds to $4.4 billion, which would have a devastating impact on people on concern and require UNHCR to radically prioritize its support for critical needs.
