Published at the same time as the IASC Guidelines on the Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action, this report aims to support their uptake and promote learning by example. This report presents 39 short case studies on inclusive practices for persons with disabilities in humanitarian action and disaster risk reduction (DRR).
Under UNICEF Executive Director Fore’s leadership, the IASC developed and endorsed the IASC Plan for Accelerating PSEA in Humanitarian Response at Country Level (“the IASC Acceleration Plan”), which commits to scale-up PSEA through collective action and investment by its members.
The IASC Plan articulates three priority outcomes to be implemented as part of every Humanitarian Response Plan or Refugee Response Plan:
1) safe and accessible reporting mechanisms that can receive and respond to incidents of SEA;
2) quality assistance for survivors of SEA; and
The study, conceived as a multi-stakeholder contribution to the Grand Bargain workstream on Enhanced Quality Funding (workstream 7&8 - Increase collaborative humanitarian multi-year planning and funding and reduce the earmarking of donor contribution), provides significant evidence to support the claim that NGOs can do more with predictable and flexible funding and identifies a number of straight-forward recommendations for NGOs, UN agencies and donor partners to implement.
On 5 December 2019, the Inter-Agency Standing Committee will meet in Geneva to discuss key issues of system-wide importance for humanitarian action. During a Horizon Scanning session, the Committee will discuss a number of critical humanitarian crises and the required support to meet the urgent humanitarian needs on the ground. They will also have the opportunity to discuss key thematic issues and agree on efforts to prioritize work around these areas.
UNHCR hosted and organized the webinar ‘What is the UN Business Innovations Group (BIG) in the Grand Bargain to reduce management cost?’ on November 26th, 2019.
