Pillar 1

Coordination and leadership

Coordination during emergencies is critical as it involves the contribution of different sectorial agencies, teams and partners towards a common goal. Coordination can generate economies of scale, avoid fragmentation of multiple and targeted programs that require collaboration at service delivery level. Coordinated responses, timely inter-agency assessments and information sharing reduce the burden on affected people who may be subjected to demands for the same information from a series of assessment teams.


Ensure technical, operational and political support mechanisms are enhanced and supported daily to coordinate all aspects of preparedness and response.
