SummaryThe Government has repeatedly stressed the importance of accountability and transparency in all its programs. Since its establishment, OCFA has worked to enhance the accountability and transparency of the UAE’s foreign aid in a number of ways, including by establishing a reporting framework for the UAE’s foreign aid data, and introducing international best practices to UAE donor organizations through its capacity-building events.

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.
