Financial Tracking Service (FTS) – Tracking Global Humanitarian Aid Flows

The FTS is a web-based searchable database of humanitarian requirements and contributions. It is a unique service provided by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, as it is the only system in the world that provides information on global humanitarian aid flows in real- time. It serves to analyse aid and monitor accountability among humanitarian actors, by clearly indicating to what extent a certain population receives humanitarian relief aid, and in what proportion to needs. The FTS offers a series of standard tables that show humanitarian aid flows in various formats, and also allows users to produce custom financial tables on demand.

It is located on

The main FTS features:

Tracking of contributions for total humanitarian assistance (as reported to OCHA), including cash and in-kind contributions to Consolidated and Flash Appeals, bilateral aid, Natural Disaster Response, and other humanitarian assistance.

On-line contributions reporting and online donations.
Searchable database allowing users to build custom tables export the data into Excel format. Users can also save their queries and subscribe to RSS or XML feeds.
Quick search tools to look at funding trends by donor.

What does FTS allow you to do?

Monitor the funding status of any emergency or appeal. Detailed reports show funding by cluster, organisation, project, priority, location, etc.
Monitor humanitarian funding outside the appeala, identify donors and implementing organizations for activities not included in the appeal who need to be brought into the process and the cluster.
FTS differentiates uncommitted pledges from committed funding, so that you can follow up with donors that have outstanding pledges.
Donor profiles provide quick overviews of humanitarian funding by any given donor to a specific country or globally.

FTS allows us to keep messages consistent by allowing everyone to refer to one set of figures.

FTS helps to improve coordination by offering information at a glance on which implementing organizations and donors are working in which emergencies, sectors, and locations, and to what scale.
