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.
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.
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.
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.
