The Consolidated Appeals Process (CAP)

The Consolidated Appeals Process (CAP) is a tool used by humanitarian organisations to plan, implement and monitor their activities together. Working together in the world's crisis regions, they produce strategies and related funding appeals, which they present to the international community and donors.

Since its inception, the CAP has become the humanitarian sector’s main tool for coordination, strategic planning and programming. As a planning mechanism, the CAP has contributed significantly to developing a more strategic approach to the provision of humanitarian aid. As a coordination mechanism the CAP has fostered closer cooperation between governments, donors, and aid agencies, in particular United Nations agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and components of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.
