|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)
|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).
|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-2||R4 Governance||Number and Percentage of affected areas with local government-led response planning capacity, with the ability to meet the needs of the enitre community in its diversity||
"Area" refers to a government unit at the lowest level - usually a municipality/ town/ city. However, areas can be defined according to context. "Response Plan" is defined as the presence of a plan at local level, that indicates the relative readiness and capacity of the locality to undertake response and recovery activities.
|Early Recovery||R-3||R4 Governance||Number of affected areas with local government taking active planning/strategic measure to reduce the risk of disasters||
"Government-led" refers to a process that is either sanctioned, endorsed, or directly led by the government (including local government units) to have an effect on specific sectors. This indicator may include DRR, preparedness or contingency planning and practice.
|Early Recovery||R-4||R4 Governance||Number of areas where local government across sectors use knowledge, innovation and education to build a culture of preparedness, safety and resilience. This is to be differentiated by age/sex||
This could include relevant information on disasters is available and accessible at all levels, to all stakeholders (through networks, development of information sharing system. ii. School curricula, education material and relevant trainings include risk reduction and recovery concepts and practices. iii. Research methods and tools for multi risk assessments and cost benefit analysis are developed and strengthened. iv. Country wide public awareness strategy exists to stimulate a culture of disaster resilience, with outreach to urban and rural communities.
|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.
