WHY THIS HANDBOOK?
HIGHLIGHTS OF 2015 ACHIEVEMENTS
A considerable number of displaced populations travelled across the contact line to access healthcare, education, employment, markets, services and their social entitlements, increased stress on available resources and services and impacted on both IDPs and host communities. Early Recovery Cluster partners contributed 11% to the total humanitarian response budget and 16% of total target population reached. The details of accomplishment are as follows:
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.
