Despite continued efforts to improve humanitarian funding, there is on-going criticism that aid frequently arrives too late. The UK Government’s Department for International Development (DFID) has committed to improve the quality of funding by increasing the predictability and timeliness of UK funding, with one of its mandates to agree to multi-year funding for humanitarian crises. This paper is a desk-based study that attempts to explore in detail the cost-effectiveness of multi-year approaches to humanitarian programming at country level.
