Global Clusters Code Sub-domain Title Description
Food Security, Health, Logistics, Protection, Nutrition, Water Sanitation Hygiene, Camp Coordination / Management, Education, Emergency Shelter and NFI, Emergency Telecommunications, Early Recovery AAP-1 Feedback Mechanisms Number of feedback received (including complaints) which have been acted upon

Feedback mechanisms provide a means for all those affected to comment on and thus indirectly influence programme planning and implementation (see HAP’s ‘participation’ benchmark). They include focus group discussions, surveys, interviews and meetings on ‘lessons learnt’ with a representative sample of all the affected population (see ECB’s Good Enough Guide for tools and Guidance notes 3–4). The findings and the agency’s actions in response to feedback should be systematically shared with the affected population. (Sphere Core Standard 1, Guidance Note 2)

Food Security, Health, Logistics, Protection, Nutrition, Water Sanitation Hygiene, Camp Coordination / Management, Education, Emergency Shelter and NFI, Emergency Telecommunications, Early Recovery AAP-2 Sharing Information Number of information products distributed to the affected population through a variety of mechanisms on humanitarian program planning, functioning and progress

People have a right to accurate and updated information about actions taken on their behalf. Information can reduce anxiety and is an essential foundation of community responsibility and ownership. At a minimum, clusters and agencies should provide a description of the cluster's role and responsibilities, agency’s mandate and project(s), the population’s entitlements and rights, and when and where to access assistance (see HAP’s ‘sharing information’ benchmark). (Sphere Core Standard 1, Guidance Note 4)

Possible examples:

Food Security, Health, Logistics, Protection, Nutrition, Water Sanitation Hygiene, Camp Coordination / Management, Education, Emergency Shelter and NFI, Emergency Telecommunications, Early Recovery AAP-3 Participation Number of persons consulted (disaggregated by sex/age) before designing a program/project [alternatively: while implementing the program/project]

Participation in design of assessments, programmes, evaluations etc, means that a selected segment(s) of the affected populaiton have a direct influence on decision making.  Measures should be taken to ensure the participation of members of all groups of affected people – young and old, men and women. Special efforts should be made to include people who are not well represented, are marginalised (e.g. by ethnicity or religion) or otherwise ‘invisible’ (e.g. housebound or in an institution).

Food Security F-1 F3 Food Access Change in food consumption patterns

Can be measured by several indicatos like Food Consumption Score (FCS) And Household dietary diveristy score (HDDS). Current compared to pre-crisis. Frequency of meals, dietary diversity, increase/ decrease of certain food items.

Food Security F-10 F6 Availability Change in availability of key commodities in markets

Measuring the difference in availability of key commodities will indicate if markets are under stress at different periods of time in comparison to the baseline.

Food Security F-11 F6 Availability Percentage of Households by duration of staple food stock

Percentage of households that have stocks of staple food to feed their family or have the capacity to access food stocks for a given duration of time.

Food Security F-12 F6.1 Food Availability and Agriculture Change in production compared to previous year’s harvest by commodity
Comparing the last years' (normal production) with the post crisis crop production which is also an indicator that can give information on household access to income
 
Food Security F-13 F6 Availability Percentage of Households/ communities unable to plant for next season

Share of households that are unable to restart their agricultural activities in the upcoming cropping season. To be able to farm, HHs need access to arable land, seeds, tools and other agricultural inputs. Depending on the type of crisis, one or more of these can become unavailable.

Food Security F-14 F6 Availability Change in herd sizes

Reporting on the percentage of change to overall herd sizes (households that either lost animals because of the crisis or had to sell or slaughter their animals as an emergency measure).

Food Security F-15 F6 Availability Number of reported animal disease outbreaks

Number of animal disease outbreaks in a community or in any given geographical area.
