This note lays out the agreed Priority Areas of Work for the IASC Results Groups covering the 2020.
The IASC Results Groups have been encouraged to be concrete in their deliverables, to focus on activities that will have the most impact on field effectiveness, will support IASC Principals’ with their decisions and/or advocacy efforts, promise the highest return for investment, and are inclusive; ensuring systematic engagement with key relevant IASC and non-IASC inter-agency structures.
As the IASC Results Groups have embarked upon their initial Priority Areas of Work for 2019, the scope and ownership of their priorities have evolved to reflect the specificities of the tasks and deliverables. The living document below will be intermittently updated to reflect changes in the Priority Areas of Work of Results Group 4 in order to best deliver against their IASC Strategic Priorities.
Results Group 4 on Humanitarian and Development Collaboration met on 6 June in Geneva/New York to discuss the priority areas of work tasked by the Operational Policy and Advocacy Group (OPAG). Given the tight timeline to report to OPAG in September, the Results Group agreed, as its modalities, to form small group of members with proposed leads to take forward each of the OPAG-agreed priority areas of work.
The objective of this document is to provide initial IASC contribution to the conceptualisation of the H/D nexus. It originated through a three-day workshop of the IASC Task Team on the Humanitarian Development Nexus, which gathered field practitioners and policy specialists to articulate a common position among humanitarians, through the IASC, on commonly-agreed upon understandings and criteria defining collective outcomes.
Below is a list of the individual and organisation membership of all five of the IASC Results Groups. Since this copy is only periodically updated, contact the IASC secretariat or the relevant Results Group co-Chairs for the latest details on the participation in each group.
