New analysis shows 42.3 percent donor disbursement rate for Haiti

Nov 23, 2010

The United Nations Office of the Special Envoy for Haiti (OSE) has conducted a new analysis of pledges made at the international donors conference on Haiti organized by UNDP (on behalf of the UN) and other partners on March 31 in New York. The analysis of the pledges made for post-earthquake recovery activities revealed a 42.3 percent disbursement rate among top donors in 2010.

 The OSE requests regular updates from the top 30 pledge-makers at the international donors conference, and has received comprehensive data for 24 of them. These 24 donors pledged $5.75 billion (93 percent) of the $6.17 billion total for 2010 and 2011. For 2010 alone, the 24 donors pledged approximately $2.12 billion for recovery activities (excluding debt relief totaling $1.12 billion). Of the $2.12 billion, $897 million (42.3 percent) has been disbursed.

This $897 million has been disbursed through four channels:

  • $200.3 million in budget support to the Government of Haiti
  • $209.3 million in pooled grant funding to the United Nations, Inter-American Development Bank and the World Bank through the Haiti Reconstruction Fund
  • $359.1 million in grants to the Government of Haiti, multilateral agencies, NGOs and private contractors
  • $128.3 million in loans to the Government of Haiti

This analysis does not include funds pledged for humanitarian relief activities.
