Immediate Response Account (IRA) Update


Immediate Response Account (IRA) Update

The IRA quarterly updates were discontinued in 2017. Information on IRA donors and allocations is now available on the IRA page and in the 2017 report on the Use of Multilateral and IRA Funding. A new report will be published in early 2019 covering the year 2018.

The Immediate Response Account (IRA) is the World Food Programme's (WFP) life-saving funding facility, which allows WFP to rapidly respond to emergencies. IRA-financed assistance can be deployed within 24 hours of the onset of a crisis.
