Results Group 1 on Operational Response addresses system-wide issues and in particular any gaps from the normative/policy perspective. It reports to the Operational Policy and Advocacy Group (OPAG) and relevant issues would be brought to the attention of the Emergency Directors Group (EDG) for joint consideration.

Thematic issues:

  • Centrality of protection
  • Humanitarian system-wide emergency activation
  • Coordination arrangements
  • Humanitarian leadership
  • Early warning and preparedness

Note: This group builds on the valuable outputs of the previous IASC Reference Group on Risk, Early Warning and Preparedness and the IASC Reference Group on Principled Humanitarian Action which completed their work in January 2019.
