Technical experts from the IASC members come together in Results Groups to tackle policy challenges under the IASC Strategic Priorities. They work to develop common narratives and policies and to establish best practice using their collective expertise. IASC Results Groups are tasked to meet quarterly but in practice do so more frequently. They report on their progress and outputs to the Operational Policy and Advocacy Group, who can recommend that their guidance is endorsed by the IASC as an IASC Product.
The five IASC Results Groups are timebound and responsible for delivering the agreed normative/system-wide outputs under each of the five IASC Strategic Priorities for the biennium. Their support may also be sought to review guidelines produced by inter-agency bodies outside of the formal IASC structure, after vetting by the IASC secretariat. The five Results Groups report to the Operational Policy and Advocacy Group (OPAG), with strong linkages to the Emergency Directors Group to ensure that their work is reflective of and responsive to field needs and realities.
Each Results Group comprises representatives with substantive and technical knowledge of the relevant area and is co-chaired by two IASC members, nominated by IASC members, in two-yearly rotation.

Prior to the IASC reform in January 2019, the function of today’s Results Groups was carried out by the IASC Task Teams and Reference Groups, accountable to the Working Group. This report presents key activities and outcomes of the work of these IASC subsidiary bodies in 2018.
