CERF Life-Saving Criteria

CERF Life-Saving Criteria, approved by the Emergency Relief Coordinator, reflect lessons learned, best practices, policies, terminology, and agreements elaborated over the last decade - while preserving CERF’s core life-saving mandate. The update does not significantly change the range of CERF-eligible activities.  

The updated Life-Saving Criteria will take effect immediately and will be used by the CERF Secretariat to assess applications for CERF funding. We would be grateful if you could disseminate these within your organization.

Please do let the CERF team and I know if you have any questions or concerns. Questions and comments can be addressed to Michael Jensen (, the Chief of the CERF secretariat.
