Exploring Coordination in Humanitarian Clusters

When a multitude of humanitarian actors are responding to a crisis, achieving effective coordination is an essential part of a successful humanitarian response. Sector-based clusters are tasked with a multitude of activities, but what does ‘effective coordination’ mean for the humanitarian clusters? And how do the clusters achieve this success? Using a spectrum of coordination, this study looks at these questions and at what is the right level of coordination for clusters.

Good humanitarian action reaches everyone in need

This paper looks at the obstacles to humanitarian action reaching everyone in need and provides recommendations. It is one of the briefing papers prepared for the Global Forum which took place in New York on 4-5 June 2015. A distinguishing feature of humanitarian assistance and protection activities is that they are provided on the basis of need. Where people are in need of support and this support does not materialise humanitarian action has failed to meet one of its most important objectives.

Good humanitarian action is consistent with longer term political, economic and social processes

This paper looks at the obstacles to humanitarian action being consistent with longer term political, economic and social processes and provides recommendations. It is one of the briefing papers prepared for the Global Forum which took place in New York on 4-5 June 2015. Intervening in the underlying issues that lead to humanitarian crises – be they poverty, marginalisation or political instability – can arguably prevent the need to respond in the long term.
