Indicators

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.

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).

Protection P-10 (P) Protection Percentage of communities to which international and/or national humanitarian organizations' access to populations has been limited by duty bearers or armed actors
Protection P1-PC2-3 PC2 Physical violence and other harmful practices Percentage of surveyed community members who are able to articulate strategies to prevent physical violence and other harmful practices
Protection P1-PC3-1 PC3 Sexual violence Percentage of surveyed communities that indicate a change in the incidence of sexual violence against children since [DATE-EMERGENCY-ETC]

The date to be used for this baseline indicator needs to be determined in country - it could be the start of the emergency or an interagency agreed date in a protratcted crisis, eg the previous three months

Protection P1-PC3-2 PC3 Sexual violence Child Protection actors have done an analysis of how sexual violence towards boys and girls is viewed and responded to

yes/no indicator; need to include both elements of the context analysis (viewed and responded to) to be counted as "yes"

Protection P1-PC4-1 PC4 Psychosocial distress and mental disorders Percentage of communities [or camps] that have functioning safe spaces for children [and/or youth]
Protection P1-PC4-2 PC4 Psychosocial distress and mental disorders Percentage of surveyed communities who indicate children exhibit behavioural changes that relate to symptoms of distress since [DATE-EMERGENCY-ETC]

The date to be used for this baseline indicator needs to be determined in country - it could be the start of the emergency or an interagency agreed date in a protratcted crisis, eg the previous three months

Protection P1-PC4-3 PC4 Psychosocial distress and mental disorders Percentage of community members surveyed who know how to support children with psychosocial distress

know means that they can name at least one response activity appropriate for children; the indicator needs to make use of the MHPSS intervention pyramid and will be assessed through a Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices Survey
