Global Clusters Code Sub-domain Title Description
Early Recovery R-1 R4 Governance Number and Percentage of public sector employees (male/female) unavailable because of crisis by gender/grade or post

Number of public sector employees is one of crucial proxy indicators to the functioning of government in post crisis setting. Public sector employees may be unavailable because they or their families are directly affected by mortality or injury because of the crisis. They may also not be at work because their workplace building has been damaged or destroyed, because they cannot use transport networks to access their workplace, or because insecurity does not permit travel to work.

Early Recovery R-13 R2 Basic Infrastructure Restoration Number and Percentage of population with access to basic community infrastructure not covered by other sectors or clusters, e.g. police stations, town halls, administrative buildings. Schools (if not covered by Edu), playgrounds, parks

The types of basic community infrastructure that is covered by the Early Recovery cluster will be decided in-country by the relevant cluster coordinators.  The accessibility of ER structures must then be estimated: access in disasters can be limited by the damage or destruction of a structure; by damage or destruction of the transport networks servicing the structure; or by insecurity, for example.

Early Recovery R-16 R1 Economic Recovery and Livelihoods Number and Percentage of affected population with no access to any formal or informal financial service

This indicator must first assess the  type of financial services that were available to a population pre-crisis. These can include, for example, banks, phones,  family or community borrowing and trade.

Early Recovery R-17 R3 Capacity Building Number and percentage of micro enterprise owners in affected areas recieved skills training

Micro enterprise owners can be identified as people who own, operate and staff their own small and very small businesses.  If these enterprises are affected by disaster, the owners may benefit from skilling up in related or new trades

Early Recovery R-18 R3 Capacity Building Number and percentage of CBO leaders in affected areas trained in disaster risk reduction and planning

Community based organisation leaders can be defined as people who initiate adn manage community groups that benefit people in the community or neighbourhood. If these CBOs are either affected by disaster, or are contributing to humnaitarian response, then the leaders may benefit from skilling up.

Early Recovery R-5 R1 Economic Recovery and Livelihoods Number and Percentage of households in need of income support

Households that are commonly in need of income support include those with no or very low income sources, female- or child- headed households and internally displaced people.

Early Recovery R-7 R1 Economic Recovery and Livelihoods Number and Percentage of households with no livelihood assets

After an emergency, the livelihood assets of a household may be damaged, destroyed or killed (in the case of livestock). The kinds of assets affected, and the kinds of support the affected households need, will be different in different contexts.

Early Recovery R-8 R1 Economic Recovery and Livelihoods Percentage of economically active workforce that is employed on: a) a short term/ temporary basis; and b) a long term/ permanent basis

"Employment" is defined broadly here as work that is paid, either formally or informally. It can allow households to be self sufficient and further, can allow them to build their resilience in the face of disasters. Long term work increases these positives.

Early Recovery R-9 R2 Basic Infrastructure Restoration Number and Percentage of population directly affected by problematic rubble/debris

"Debris or rubble" is the material from the damage or destruction that results from some disasters. It includes wreckage from everything that could possibly be destroyed or damaged, as well as materials brought in by a catastrophic event. "Problematic" refers to situations where such debris causes immediate physical and psychological barriers for emergency relief and recovery activities.
