25 March 2014: In early 2014, the worst rains in five years caused heavy flooding and landslides affecting an estimated 335,000 people. In response, the Emergency Relief Coordinator approved a rapid response grant from CERF on 25 March. The US$3.2 million allocation will support critical assistance, including the provision of shelter, food, sanitation facilities and access to clean water.
In 2013, CERF allocated $2.4 million for emergency assistance to people affected by drought in Bolivia. Since 2006, Bolivia has received almost $17 million from CERF in response to natural disasters.
