As a Cluster Lead Agency, UNDP has commissioned an independent prospective evaluation on the scope of the Global Cluster for Early Recovery (GCER) at global level and on the work of the Early Recovery clusters/sectors in countries where clusters/sectors were formally activated by the IASC. The purpose of the evaluation was two-fold: firstly, to evaluate the overall effectiveness of GCER coordination, and secondly to support UNDP’s consideration of the most appropriate way to support Early Recovery in the future.
This guidance/tip sheet is elaborated as a follow up to the Principal’s decision on improving HRP costing in July 2017. This is a living document that will be updated as more knowledge and experience of costing is gathered. In particular, the cluster-specific guidance part will be updated whenever relevant information is provided by the GCCs.

In recent years, the world has seen a dramatic change in the nature of crises:
This Tip Sheet describes interventions, poses action-oriented questions and offers an example of the 4 Key GEMs. These critical programming steps connect to generate gender equality in Early Recovery projects and programs. The IASC GAM (described below) flags whether these steps are in proposals or implemented projects.
Gender Equality in Early Recovery: Programs equally benefit women and men and contribute to the empowerment of women.
The Early Recovery sector can make things fair by:
During the 2016 World Humanitarian Summit (WHS), UN Member States, Civil Society Organizations, private sector and media gathered on the topic of Transforming Humanitarian Action with and for Young People, and called to align strategies, approaches and programmatic responses to reach all young people and empower young women and men, and adolescent girls and boys to be agents of positive transformation.
Le Guide sur la Coordination du Relèvement Rapide fournit une version résumée des informations relatives aux concepts, aux processus et aux outils essentiels pour une coordination efficace des approches de relèvement Rapide dans un pays en crise. Il est principalement destiné aux experts et aux praticiens de la coordination du relèvement rapide.
The IASC established the CWGER in 2005 with the aim of enhancing the global capacity for developing relief and recovery-related interventions, enhancing the impact of development interventions, and integrating risk reduction measures at the very early stages of emergency response and beyond.
The CWGER is chaired by UNDP and is comprised of 31 active global partners from the humanitarian and development communities, including representatives of UN Agencies, Red Cross Movement, and NGOs.
This Guidance is not intended as a step-by-step manual on how to develop and implement Early Recovery projects or on how to coordinate a cluster.
More information on projects and the cluster can be found in agency training and cluster coordination manuals – references at the end of this guidance.
VISION AND GOALS
Ensure holistic and system-wide response that include national and local actors to improve aid effectiveness, reduce vulnerability to shocks and to pave the way to sustainable development by strengthening linkages between humanitarian and development frameworks.
Early Recovery is systematically mainstreamed into humanitarian action and humanitarian and development actors are brought together to ensure successful transition to sustainable resilient-based development.
Background and aims
In 2015, the Global Cluster for Early Recovery (GCER) sought to measure how well early recovery was integrated into each cluster, and in parallel, to advance understanding of the relative importance of early recovery principles and practices in humanitarian crises overall. In designing a methodology to undertake this analysis, two assumptions were made.
The Guidance on Early Recovery Coordination provides a summary version of information on concepts, processes and tools essential for an efficient coordination of early recovery approaches in a country in crisis. It is intended primarily for early recovery coordination experts and practitioners.
The guidance also contains links to the Early Recovery Online Resource Centre which provides more context and information on Early Recovery and supports humanitarian and development partners in better integrating Early Recovery into their work.
While there is a consensus on the importance of accountability to affected population in humanitarian response, country teams often raise the question “how do we actually do it”? This document is an attempt to illustrate more concretely what accountability to affected population means in terms of Early Recovery (ER) assistance and coordination.

It is the aim of this Briefing Note with Strategy to present key environmental aspects and opportunities that relate to Early Recovery as a support to the UNDP Crisis Interface Team (CIT) within the Crisis Response Unit (CRU).
It is CIT’s ambition to mainstream and integrate environmental aspects and opportunities into Early Recovery activities and approaches across the Early Recovery cluster as a multi-dimensional issue.
