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.
Early Recovery Online Resource Centre
The Early Recovery Online Resource Centre developed by the Global Cluster for Early Recovery (GCER) is based on a modular information architecture that allows the organization, display, and search of documents, guidance, and tools according to your needs. Two links: “What is Early Recovery” and “Integrating Early Recovery” inform you about the principles of this coordinated approach. The website gives you access to an open-source, one-stop shop for documents, tools and guidance on Early Recovery and resilience strengthening in the context of a humanitarian crisis.
The multilingual online resource center provides fact sheets on the integration of Early Recovery in humanitarian responses and includes links to other global clusters and relevant sources. Web pages are devoted to countries in a state of crisis that adopt an Early Recovery approach. It includes documents in English, French, Russian, Ukrainian and Arabic. The number of languages and documents is expected to significantly increase in 2016 and beyond.
The website, funded by the European Union and developed with the support of the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) allows more effective outreach and advocacy on the issue, while also stimulating the discussion through an online forum that will provide the foundation for an Early Recovery community of practice.
