SummaryIn order to maximize the UAE’s visibility as a major international donor, OCFA has developed a comprehensive framework for reporting the country’s foreign aid contribution that is compatible with the reporting requirements of international bodies.
The framework has been updated in response to comments from UAE donor organisations during the 2009-2011 reporting cycles, and includes mechanisms for reporting data electronically as well as standards and guidelines on how to categorise the forms of aid.
In advance of the 2012 data collection process, OCFA would like to invite its key partners to familiarize them with the core components of the UAE Reporting Framework, highlight the modifications that have been made in response to donors’ feedback, and explore some of the lessons learned from the 2009-2011 reporting cycles.
Content:• Purpose and rationale for the UAE reporting framework• UAE foreign aid reporting standards and guidelines• Reporting mechanisms• Experiences of UAE donor organisations of reporting data to OCFA• Lessons learned from 2009-2011 reporting cycles

EIF reports provide information on current emergencies, in order to alert UAE actors to the most pressing needs resulting from a humanitarian emergency, as well as an overview of the international and UAE response to date. An EIF is issued when support from the UAE may be required due to the magnitude of the crisis or the vulnerability of the affected population.
Humanitarian Flash reports are available to UAE actors only, and provide updates on current humanitarian issues worldwide by theme, such as climate change and the global food crisis, as well as a summary of natural disasters, such as earthquakes and floods, to which there has generally not been an international response.
Humanitarian Country Profiles provide information about development and humanitarian issues within a selected country, as well as listing the major local and international organizations that are already present in the field. The countries are selected according to the level of assistance that they have received from the UAE over the past two decades, and whether they are facing recurrent or ‘chronic’ emergencies.
