In previous natural disasters, many countries made generous pledges but did not honour their pledges. Will history repeat itself?

'During the early period of the response to the tsunami (caused by the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake), concerns were voiced in various quarters that the international relief effort might falter if nations did not honour their initial pledges. On 3 January 2005, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan urged donor nations to ensure that their pledges were fully honoured, pointing to previous cases where "we got lots of pledges, but we did not receive all the money".

On 5 January, as countries jockeyed to make large donations, Jan Egeland said, "I'd rather see competitive compassion than no compassion", adding that too many countries were making pledges without any guarantee that the funds would arrive.' (Wikipedia)

Sometime after each natural disaster, the UN should disclose the amount actually delivered by each donor country together with the amount they pledged and publish it in international newspapers.
