UK, Qatar Jointly Announce Global Humanitarian Co-Funding Initiative

As part of a joint collaborative humanitarian effort between the State of Qatar and the United Kingdom, the two states are launching a formally led Qatar-UK co-funding initiative.

Under the initiative, the UK and Qatar will work towards an initial $50 million target to address the most pressing humanitarian and development challenges globally. This marks a significant milestone in the partnership between the two countries that underscores our shared commitment.

Through this cooperation, Qatar and the UK will combine their expertise, resources, and networks to implement impactful projects that address both the immediate and long-term challenges faced by communities in these critical areas. This collaborative effort reflects our unwavering dedication to promoting sustainable progress and resilience, with the ultimate goal of improving the lives of millions of people.

Recently, the State of Qatar and the United Kingdom have worked together to deliver 29 tonnes of urgent humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip within the framework of joint humanitarian and development cooperation. In addition, the two countries are actively working together to implement several co-funding opportunities, with two focused on Syria to bolster crucial humanitarian and educational initiatives, and one aimed at addressing food insecurity in Somalia.

The two countries reaffirm their commitment to accelerating progress on these vital initiatives through the inaugural Development Dialogue in London in May 2024. This event will solidify further co-funding opportunities, promote collaboration on development issues and enhance aid delivery capabilities.

Together, the State of Qatar and the United Kingdom are dedicated to addressing the most urgent development challenges with greater urgency and effectiveness.
