Humanitarian NGO Coordination:

 

This section helps readers to better understand NGO coordination and provides practical guidance on how to establish an NGO coordination body and how to manage the coordination body once its established

 

These resources are an entry point into the world of NGO coordination – an area of humanitarian response that is vast in practice, but also quite limited in terms of documentation and available resources.

 

Who Is This For?

 

These resources are for operational NGOs that wish to coordinate their activities with each other and with external actors, such as national and local governments; the Red Cross/Red Crescent Movement; the United Nations; donors; and other actors during a humanitarian response.

 

This is intended to help NGOs to establish their own coordination processes to complement, not duplicate or replace other coordination mechanisms – such as those set up by government or UN bodies or the Red Cross/Red Crescent Movement.

 

This is intended as a resource for all NGOs – whether they are local, national, or international. It is primarily focused on humanitarian response situations, but there are elements that are applicable in other contexts.
