Feedback and Complaint Mechanisms (FCM) are an essential component of transparent and accountable humanitarian response. Action Against Hunger provides formal feedback channels in the majority of its country programs. To document good practices and lessons learned, a qualitative study was undertaken focused on the FCMs in use by Action Against Hunger in Pakistan and Uganda.
EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE OF THE HIGH COMMISSIONER'S PROGRAMME
Rome, 7 May 2009 - Following the disastrous 2005 earthquake in Pakistan, several humanitarian organizations came forward to help households who had lost their livestock to rebuild herds and flocks by providing replacement animals.
But most of the animal shelters in the affected areas had been destroyed, and there was also a major shortage of winter feed.
The Government Offices have decided to contribute SEK 30 million to a new system for improving the international community's operations in humanitarian crises.
The system will also make it easier to initiate reconstruction efforts at an earlier stage. The leading humanitarian organisations have agreed to divide the responsibility for different types of operations among themselves.
BRUSSELS - With a contribution of a 4 million euros from ECHO for Pakistan today, the European Commission (EC) has provided its largest contribution since 1992 - some 214 million euros - to the United Nations World Food Programme's (WFP) operations around the globe in its effort to save lives and feed the hungry poor.
