The United Nations has set up a new £100M emergency disaster relief fund using donations from the UK, Sweden, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Norway and Nigeria. From January 2006 the cash from the fund will be available within two days of an emergency instead of the three to four weeks it currently takes to award UN cash.
