IASC Emergency Response Preparedness Guidelines - July 2015 - Draft for field testing

Published Date

July 1, 2015

The IASC Task Team on Preparedness and Resilience has developed
the ‘Emergency Response Preparedness’ (ERP) approach to enable the
international humanitarian system to apply a proactive approach to
emergency preparedness. The ERP guidance builds on the importance
placed by the IASC Transformative Agenda on preparedness on both
the programmatic and financial side and, in particular, for hct and iASc
organizations to act on specific early warning indicators to engage in
inter‐agency contingency planning and other coordinated preparedness
actions to improve collective response readiness. The ERP approach
can be complementary to development action, e.g. through an UNDAF,
that seeks to build national and local resilience, including preparedness
capacity – especially where international and national capacity can be
closely coordinated. The ERP replaces the ‘Inter-Agency Contingency
Planning Guidelines for humanitarian Assistance’ as developed in 2001
and updated in 2007.
