IAHE CAR 2016 - Coordination and Effectiveness
The HC/HCT should address key weaknesses in the coordination process in order to strengthen effectiveness. It should concentrate on needs assessment targeting specific vulnerabilities and groups of beneficiaries, strategic planning and monitoring, and define an effective approach to preparedness with development actors. To that end, it should consider:
i. Strengthening the three interrelated HPC elements where greatest improvements could be made to strengthen coordination and effectiveness: needs assessments, strategic planning and monitoring.
ii. Defining an effective approach to preparedness with development actors, including regularly updating contingency and preparedness plans for the country, following IASC guidance (Operational Peer Review [OPR]).
iii. Facilitating collective involvement in the HPC by ensuring an efficient process with an appropriate work calendar.
