 What is the CBPF Data Hub Top

Country-based pooled funds (CBPFs) are multi-donor humanitarian financing instruments established by the Emergency Relief Coordinator (ERC). CBPFs allocate funding based on identified humanitarian needs and priorities at the country level in line with the Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP). 
The CBPF Data Hub is a tool that displays the latest CBPF allocation and contribution data. in a meaningful and useful way which helps users to analyse the funding process with a consolidated view. You can access the CBPF Data Hub at this address: https://cbpf.data.unocha.org/
All CBPF Data Hub data is live and publicly available for everyone to use and download.
In the CBPF Data Hub, data trends are illustrated through eye-friendly, analytical, and thematic visualizations. This information management platform is structured in nine different sections. Please find a brief overview on each of the section below. 
You can find more information from our 2 pager on the CBPF Data Hub, available HERE.

 Allocations Overview  Top

ACCESS THE ALLOCATION OVERVIEW HERE: https://cbpf.data.unocha.org/allocations-overview.html
The Allocation Overview PFBI visualization is an interactive map that gives users an overview of allocations and projects implemented in terms of locations. 
  1. How to apply filters to the map
  2. How to access and extract the map's data
  3. How to clear the applied filters and reset the map
How to apply filters to the map 
 Users can personalize the map by applying the following filters located at the top. These filters allow for a tailored extraction of projects in a specific area or across several locations.
  • Year
  • Humanitarian Pooled Fund
  • Partner type (UN Agency, National NGO, International NGO, International Red Cross/Red Crescent Society)
  • Cluster
  • Allocation type
  • Location Level (the administrative and structural level of governance)

Simply hover over the filter you wish to apply, and select one or multiple variable(s) in the drop-down list (see screenshot below with example for 'Allocation Type' filter drop-down list).

Your filters' selection not only applies to the map below, but also to the blue figures above the map, and is indicated by the sequence below the map.
How to access and extract the map's data 
The map provides information at two levels:

1. The brief overview per location, which shows, on the map the following information per fund/selected location:

  • The total allocated budget; 
  • The number of partners;
  • The number of projects;
  • A breakdown of targeted and reached person per gender and age.

Hover over the Fund's/location's marker to see its tooltip. 

2. The more detailed overview which gives, below the map, a full list of projects implemented in a specific Fund.

This list includes the main projects' characteristics:

  • the project's code;
  • the project title;
  • the Implementing Partner's Organization name;
  • the allocation type;
  • the number of targeted/reached people;
  • and the project's budget.

To generate the list, click on [Show projects] in the Fund's/location's tooltip. The corresponding list then appears below the map.

This list can also be generated for all funds filtered on the map by clicking on [Show all projects].

 *Please Note that this list is generated at global level. Hence, the [Show all projects] button will only be visible if you selected [Global level] in the 'Location level' filter options. 
This list of projects can be downloaded as an excel sheet by clicking on [.CSV].
How to clear the applied filters and reset the map 
To clear the list, click on [Remove this list].
To reset the whole map and clear all filters applied, click on [Reset].

 COVID-19 Allocations Top

ACCESS THE COVID 19 ALLOCATION MAP HERE: https://pfdata.unocha.org/COVID19/

The COVID 19 Allocations visualization is a set of two visuals providing real-time information on CERF and CBPF allocations responding to the 2019 COVID Pandemic. It is composed of the Distribution of Allocations map, and the Allocations Timeline.
The COVID-19 Allocations map is an interactive map displaying in real-time all CERF and CBPF allocations responding to the COVID-19 Pandemic. It is public and allows users not only to visualize at a glance the global and in-country situation, but also to extract projects’ raw data as Excel sheets.
The Allocations’ Timeline displays the key dates and milestones related to OCHA's response to the pandemic, including CERF and CBPF allocations.
To learn more about this visualization, you can refer to our dedicated article on the Help Portal or watch this tutorial video .

CBPF Funding Targets and HRP FundingTop

ACCESS THE CBPF FUNDING TARGETS AND HRP FUNDING HERE: https://cbpf.data.unocha.org/cbpfvshrp.html

This dashboard provides an overview and tracks progress of CBPF funding against requirements and funding levels of HRPs in each country with an active pooled fund.
It includes a global data section, a breakdown of CBPF funding targets by Fund, and details on CBPF for which no HRP exist.
To learn more about this dashboard, watch our tutorial video .

 CBPF GAM MarkerTop

ACCESS THE GAM HERE: https://cbpf.data.unocha.org/index.html#gam_heading 

The Gender with Age Marker used in CBPF projects is a tool that codes – from 0 to 4 - whether a humanitarian project is designed well enough to ensure that women/girls and men/boys will benefit equally from it or that it will advance gender equality in another way.

Since January 2019, all projects submitted in the Grant Management System (GMS) are required to provide a GAM code and reference number.
The new GAM Beeswarm Chart draws on this newly added data to the GMS to enable humanitarian stakeholders to visualize the allocated funds according to the Marker code.

In the beeswarm, each circle represents aggregated CBPF projects according to their Marker code (from 0 to 4). The size of the circle depicts the number of the projects for that CBPF-Marker, while the position of the circle along the horizontal axis depicts the amount allocated (as value in dollars, as a percentage of the total value for the Marker or as a percentage of the total value for the CBPF). The color indicates the Marker code (from red for GAM 0 to blue for GAM 4). 


Allocation FlowTop 

ACCESS THE ALLOCATION FLOW HERE: https://cbpf.data.unocha.org/index.html#netfunding_heading

Through the Grant Management System (GMS), CBPFs allocate funding to UN agencies, national and international NGOs, and Red Cross/Red Crescent National Societies. In turn, those implementing partners may sub-grant part of their initial grant to a third party, called sub-implementing partners.
The Allocation Flow visualization draws from the GMS data related to the funding disbursed to CBPF partners and provides an infographic aiming to track the funding flow between direct partners (i.e. Implementing Partners) and indirect partners (i.e. Sub-Implementing Partners).


  1. The Filters options: Users can apply these filters to personalize the data.

  2. The Allocations’ key figures: they reflect the filters applied, and give the following information:

    1. The amount, in USD million, allocated to all partners;

    2. The amount, in USD million, allocated to direct implementing partners only;

    3. The amount, in USD million, allocation to sub-implementing partners only.

  3. The Alluvial Diagram: it’s the main visual, and the core of this infographic. It provides an overview of the funds allocated, focusing on the recipients, whether direct or sub-implementing partners.

  4. The Sparklines allocation trends per partner type: this section displays the allocation trends according to the partner type, for both direct and sub-implementing partners together. The trends are calculated over the last three years.

  5. The usual CBPF Data Hub tooltips: Share, Play, Image, .CSV and Help. To know more about these tooltips, click on their respective links.


Direct Implementing Partners: whether they are UN agencies, national and international NGOs, or Red Cross/ Red Crescent National Societies, direct implementing partners are the main recipients of the funding granted by the CBPFs. They are the primary party filling in, submitting and reporting on the funded projects.

Direct Implementing Partners can work in tandem with a third party, for instance to implement one specific activity of their logical framework, due to the third party’s special knowledge/skillset. Consequently, the Direct Implementing Partner can decide to sub-grant a part of the funding to this third party, to fund the specific activity/ies. This third party is called the Sub-implementing Partner.

In the Alluvial diagram, Direct Implementing Partners appear in the second  and the third columns, in grey.

Sub-Implementing Partners can be UN agencies, national and international NGOs, or Red Cross/ Red Crescent National Societies, or other parties, such as governmental entities and the private sector. They neither fill nor submit project proposals on the GMS. Nevertheless, they are stated by the direct partner in the project proposal and the Grant Agreement as third parties, and they do implement specific activities as per the approved project proposal. Hence, they receive a portion of the CBPF funding from the Direct Implementing Partner (and not from the CBPF themselves) to successfully do so.

In the Alluvial diagram, Sub-Implementing Partners appear in the third column, in orange.


Tracking the amount of funding that is either direct grant, or sub-granted to third parties is at the core of this Allocation flow visual, as the alluvial diagram presents the breakdown of direct grants (blue) and sub-grants (orange) to humanitarian partners.

  1. CBPFs

  2. Direct Grants – blue flow

  3. Direct Implementing Partners by type

  4. Direct grants (amount that is not sub-granted, that is kept by the direct implementing partner) – blue flow

  5. Sub-grants (amount that is sub-granted to a sub-implementing partner) – orange flow

  6. Sub-implementing partners (represented in orange) / Direct Partners (represented in grey) - by type

* Please note, the third column comprises both Direct Implementing Partners in grey AND the Sub-Implementing Partners in orange. The Direct Implementing Partners are also included in this third column to allow a visualization of the grant amount they did NOT sub-grant, i.e. the amount they kept.

As you can see in the visual, Funds, represented in the first column (1 in the screenshot) disburse the funding, represented by the blue flows (2 in the screenshot), to Direct Partners, which are represented in the second column (3 in the screenshot). In turn, the Direct Partners can keep the funding to themselves, meaning they did not require a sub-implementing partner to carry out the project activities. This is represented by the blue flows between the second and third column (4 in the screenshot).

OR, the Direct Implementing Partners can sub-grant a percentage of their direct funding to a Sub-Implementing Partner. The sub-grants are represented by the orange flows (5 in the screenshot). Users can see the partner type for Direct Partners in grey and for Sub-Implementing Partners in orange (6 in the screenshot).

The larger the flow in the visual, the higher the grant/sub-grant amount.

The Sparklines’ section, or the allocation trends by Partner types

This section provides the breakdown of allocation trends per partner type, both Direct and Sub-Implementing Partners. It is calculated based on the last three years. A green arrow means the allocated amount increased over the last three years, while the red arrow represents a decrease in the allocated amount to partners. You can only apply a CBPF filter (i.e. select one or several CBPF in the filter section at the top) to this section.


In order to personalize this visual, you have an array of filters available. When you select filters, the key figures, the alluvial diagram and the sparklines’ section are modified to reflect your selection.

  1. Select one or multiple CBPF by ticking its/their box(es), to select all CBPFs, tick the box [All CBPFs];

  2. Select one year by double-clicking on it. You can select multiple years by single clicking on them;

  3. You have two filtering options, which will have an impact on the third column of the alluvial diagram:

    1. Aggregate by Partner Type: (filter applied by default) This option allows users to see the proportion of grants and sub-grants per partner type in the third column of the alluvial diagram.

For instance, in the screenshot below, we can see that National NGOs received most of their funding by being direct  Partner (blue flow). However, we can also see that National NGOs received sub-grants from UN Agencies, International NGOs and National NGOs (orange flows). Overall, as both a Direct Partner and as a Sub-Implementing Partner, the National NGOs were the primary recipients of CBPF funding (66,4%). 

  1. Aggregate by Partner Level: this option will divide the third column into two: the Direct Implementing Partners, in grey and the Sub-Implementing Partners, in orange.

This allows for a clear view of the amount/proportion of funding that was kept as direct grant by the Direct Implementing Partner (in the screenshot below, 85,5%) and the amount that was sub-granted to Sub-Implementing Partners, (in the screenshot below, 14,5%).


The infographic includes multiple tooltips and ribbons, providing additional information. To access the tooltips, hover over the alluvial diagram elements, namely:

  • On one CBPF in the first column,
  • On one Partner type in the second column,
  • On one Partner type, or partner level in the third column,
  • On the blue and orange flows.

When you hover over an element (in the example in the screenshot below, Somalia CBPF), it singles its data out, while setting the other parameters (i.e. the other fund’s data) in the background.



CBPFs allow Member States and private donors alike to pool their contributions to support specific humanitarian responses. They ensure that timely, coordinated, and principled funding is available and prioritized at the local level by those who are closest to people in need. CBPFs increase predictability of funding and involve frontline responders, including national and local NGOs, in the planning and delivery of humanitarian response. 
The Contribution visual displays the list of paid contributions and commitments made to CBPFs by year and allows the users to filter the donors’ contributions to the according funded CBPF.
Some of the features available are:
  • Display of the paid and pledged amount for all CBPF’s and individual CBPFs
  • Display of donor wise pooled fund contributors
  • Display of year wise CBPF contributions
