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).

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-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.
