IAHE CAR 2016 - IAHE Impact Pathway Model
Improving inter-agency strategy and performance
The IASC should develop the IAHE Impact Pathway model with lessons from the Central African Republic to guide future responses to chronic and complex emergencies. This should include lessons from PoC, clarified expectations on resilience, and guidance on reporting lives saved and risk avoided. To that end, it should consider:
i. Developing the IAHE Impact Pathway based on wider learning into an evidence-based tool to guide the collective response to ‘complex’ emergencies and chronic crises as well as natural disasters and sudden onset emergencies.
ii. Learning lessons about the protection of civilians in the Central African Republic where humanitarian solutions alone could not address the crisis, and an earlier or different response might have prevented displacement as worldwide displacement reached the highest levels ever (UNHCR June 2015).
iii. Reviewing policy and/or providing guidance on resilience as applied to complex emergencies, including resilience to the shock of violent attacks, supporting coping strategies, helping people in situ and in the bush, preventing flight to IDP sites and assisting host families and communities.
iv. Providing guidance on how to measure and report the number of lives saved and risks avoided in complex emergencies.
