Rapid Response Mechanisms

Rapid Response Mechanisms
May 29, 2016 Access

Are rapid response mechanisms contributing to a faster, more effective humanitarian response?

In self-assessments carried out on the effectiveness of a response, the speed of delivery often has the lowest score. At both country and global level, mechanisms advocating collaborative work have been put in place, to increase the timeliness of responses. However, not all HCTs and Clusters are aware of these best practice examples.

This webinar explains the different models of in-country rapid response mechanisms available, through lessons learnt from contexts such as the Democratic Republic of Congo. The webinar also addresses global and regional mechanisms that can be harnessed to inform HCT and country level thinking on how to improve the timeliness of responses.
