Country-based Pooled Funds (CBPFs) are established by the UN Emergency Relief Coordinator (ERC) when a new emergency occurs or when an existing humanitarian situation deteriorates. They allow donors to pool contributions into single, unearmarked country-specific funds to support humanitarian efforts, and are managed locally under the leadership of the Humanitarian Coordinator (HC). CBPFs allocate funds to the best placed responders (international and national NGOs, UN Agencies, Red Cross/Red Crescent Movement organizations) through an inclusive and transparent process in support of priorities set out in Humanitarian Response Plans (HRP). In 2016, CBPFs were the largest source of direct funding for national NGOs. Currently, there are 18 active CBPFs, which together received a record $706 million in donor contributions in 2016. Recognizing their critical role, the UN Secretary-General's Agenda for Humanity called on donors to increase the proportion of HRP funding channeled through CBPFs to 15 percent by 2018, which would translate to more than $1.9 billion per year.

The data describes financial transactions from OCHA to their implementing partners in IRQ and oPT, and then onwards to sub-implementing partners.
The data is a combination of data from OCHA GMS and data collected from OCHA implementing parters. The data from Implementing partners complement OCHA:s data with information on when funds were recieved and if/when funds were sent on to sub-implementing partners. This allows for analysis of how long and costly financial transactions are.
