The ICRC's budget includes the initial figures of 1,104.4 million Swiss francs for field operations and of 191.7 million francs for support provided by the organization's headquarters in Geneva.

In 2014, the ICRC's largest operations in terms of expenditure will be in Syria – one of the severest and bloodiest crises to erupt in a long time, for which the budget will amount to more than 105 million Swiss francs, or 10 per cent of the organization's total annual outlay – and Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Somalia, South Sudan, Iraq, Mali, Israel and the occupied territories, Sudan and Colombia. In the Philippines, relief activities in the areas affected by Typhoon Haiyan will be stepped up.
