IAHE CAR 2016 - L3 in Chronic Emergencies
The IASC should maintain an adequate response in the Central African Republic after the L3, and seek to adapt the L3 mechanism for chronic emergencies. To that end, it should consider:
i. Maintaining a fit-for-purpose response in the Central African Republic while transitioning out of reliance on the L3 surge, ensuring adequate prioritization, attention and funding based on needs, and engaging with development and political actors and donors to this end.
ii. Adapting the L3 mechanism to chronic or protracted emergencies, beyond the requirements of meeting acute timely needs.
iii. Clarifying the purpose, time limit and deactivation of the L3 mechanism in a chronic crisis.
Iv. Requiring timely transition to another mechanism capable of meeting chronic needs in a complex protracted crisis – such as a comprehensive stabilization plan.
