The practice of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) participating in the leadership and management of country level clusters is occurring more frequently in recent years. In several situations, cluster leads are approaching NGOs to take on roles in the cluster, such as coleadership. This review draws on the experiences of NGOs in cluster leadership and management in the four focus countries of the NGOs and Humanitarian Reform Project: Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Zimbabwe.
Since the beginning of the UN-led humanitarian reform process, there have been several suggestions about the need to better involve NGOs - particularly national and local NGOs - in the various aspects of reform.
ATLANTA (July 3, 2008) - More than 14 million people in the Horn of Africa require urgent food aid and other humanitarian assistance over the coming months while, in Afghanistan, more than 6.5 million people are facing food insecurity.
In the Horn, a combination of drought conditions and rising food prices is driving the crisis. Afghanistan is also bearing the brunt of soaring food prices globally, but in addition the country has less food than usual due to a shortfall in domestic agricultural production and a decrease in imported wheat from Pakistan.
