This revised appeal is part of a Federation-wide approach framework (see diagram below) which outlines the response structure from all Federation members contributing to this response. As part of the framework, a Federation-wide Single Plan and related reporting mechanism is being developed at the regional level based on the National Societies’ response plans and in consultation with all Federation members contributing to the response. This Plan will ensure linkages between all response activities (including bilateral activities and activities funded domestically), establish a best-practice model for good coordination and assist to leverage the capacities of all members of the Federation in the country, to maximise the collective humanitarian impact. The planned response reflects the current situation and information available at this time of the evolving emergency and will be adjusted based on further developments and more detailed assessments.
