As of late August, IOM’s Cross Border Return Programme is only 26% funded against its Humanitarian Response Plan request of 12.8M USD with 3.3M received from the Governments of Switzerland,
Norway, Canada, and the Czech Republic. Additional thematic funding has been received from ECHO for Protection programming and the Global Fund for Migration Health.
