Evaluation Of UNICEF's Cluster Lead Agency Role in Humanitarian Action
PDF File Size: 1.82 MB | Download   
Highlights:
1. The Cluster approach was introduced in 2005 within the wider context of humanitarian reform. In a process led by the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC), the Cluster approach was designed in recognition that a lack of adequate coordination had previously hampered the relevance, timeliness, effectiveness and efficiency of humanitarian response.
2. Defined as the designated responsibility for multi-actor sectoral coordination. (typically to a single humanitarian agency but in some cases to two co-lead agencies),the approach was intended to improve emergency response through greater predictability and accountability, as well as stronger partnership between and among humanitarian actors.
3. The Cluster approach is organised along a two-tiered structure involving roles and
responsibilities both at global and country levels. Each Cluster has a designated Cluster Lead Agency (CLA) or pair of co-CLAs, drawn from the humanitarian community, at global level and in countries where the Cluster approach has been activated.
4. At country level, Clusters are activated by the IASC on the recommendation of the Humanitarian Coordinator (HC) following consultation with the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT). Once established, Clusters in the field are led by Cluster Coordinators.
5. UNICEF serves as Global CLA for three Clusters: Nutrition, WASH and, as co-CLA with save the Children, Education. In addition, within the GPC led by UNHCR, UNICEF is Focal Point Agency for the Child Protection AOR7 and co-Focal Point Agency with UNFPA for Gender-Based Violence (GBV) AOR.8
