The crises in Syria, Iraq, South Sudan and the Central African Republic dominated humanitarian relief efforts this year, a meeting of the UN Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) was told on Wednesday.

CERF was established by the UN General Assembly in 2006 for more timely and reliable aid to people affected by natural disasters and armed conflicts.

It is replenished annually through contributions from governments, the private sector, foundations and individuals.
